WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Singer Chris Brown's trial on an assault charge in D.C. is expected to begin Monday. First, a judge will give her ruling in the trial of Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy.

Brown and Hollosy are charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching a man outside the W Hotel in October.

Hollosy told police he punched the man after the man tried to get on Brown's tour bus. Court papers say the man's nose was fractured. Brown has denied hitting the man.

The trial for Hollosy concluded Friday, but a verdict won't be handed down until Monday. Hollesy chose not to testify at his assault trial. The defense rested after just two witnesses.

If found guilty, Brown could face jail time in D.C. as well as additional penalties, including jail time in California.

When he was arrested in D.C., Brown was on probation in Los Angeles for an attack on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009.
