WASHINGTON (AP) — Chris Brown’s misdemeanor case is expected to be tried today in Washington D.C. But before that happens, the trial of his bodyguard has to be completed.

Both men face misdemeanor assault charges after their arrests in October.

A man claims both the singer and his bodyguard punched him in the face, breaking his nose.

During his opening arguments, the attorney for bodyguard Christopher Hollosy says the alleged victim is trying to “get rich” from the incident.

The man has filed a $3 million lawsuit against the two men. But when he testified, Parker Adams says the lawsuit wasn’t his idea — and that he didn’t tell his lawyers how much to ask for.
