WASHINGTON (AP) — A judge in Washington has delayed giving her verdict in the trial of a bodyguard for singer Chris Brown on an assault charge.

Judge Patricia Wynn had been expected to give her verdict in bodyguard Christopher Hollosy’s trial Friday. But she delayed that until Monday.

Wynn also said Brown’s trial will begin on Monday. The singer appeared briefly in court Friday.

Brown and Hollosy both face an assault charge after a Maryland man says they punched him outside a Washington hotel in October.

Hollosy told police he punched the man after the man tried to get on Brown’s tour bus. The man told police a different story: He said Brown and later Hollosy punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking.

Brown has denied hitting the man.
