Chris Brown has pleaded not guilty after he was accused of punching a photographer during an appearance at a club in Florida back in 2017.
The 'Loyal' hitmaker was detained by police - who were waiting in the wings of his concert at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach - last week due to an outstanding warrant over the alleged attack at Tampa's Club Air last year.
The photographer suffered lacerations to his face during the scuffle and the whole incident was captured on camera but, despite the footage obtained by officers, the 29-year-old singer has entered a not guilty plea to the felony battery charge.
Chris did not attend the court hearing, which took place in Florida, himself on Monday (09.07.18) and his plea was put forward by his lawyer, according to The Blast.
His lawyer also asked the court to set a date for a "disposition/pre-trial conference."
