Chris Brown’s family and friends arrived at D.C. Superior Court to support the singer. One of them was Trey Songz, who performed at Howard University on Saturday. According to WUSA 9 he yelled at U.S. Marshals to let him inside the courtroom. Extra U.S. Marshals then entered the hallway.
There were so many people in attendance that the judge asked for a bigger courtroom for the overflow crowd. A lawyer for Brown’s bodyguard said it could be 5:30 p.m. EST before the judge called for the case. The 24-year-old singer spent Sunday night in jail after he was accused of punching 20-year-old Isaac Parker in front of the W Hotel on Sunday morning.
Fans lined up outside the courthouse with signs that said “Leave Chris Brown Alone” and “Jesus Already Forgave Chris Brown.”
