The assault trial for Chris Brown's bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, began in D.C. Thursday (April 17). Hollosy is being tried before Brown for the alleged altercation with victim Parker Adams last October. 

Adams testified about getting punched by Brown and 35-year-old Hollosy. The bodyguard's punches were stronger than Brown's, Adams said. 

The fight, he continued, started after he tried to jump in Brown's picture with two female fans. Adams was with his girlfriend during the run-in, she also took the stand in the case. 

"One picture, make it quick," Adams recalled the singer telling the fans. "I thought I might as well hop in the picture."

At that point Breezy told him "I'm not into that gay s--t," which Adams said "surprised" him. He admitted to asking the Virginia native, "Why are you h--ing with me?" But said that the quip was meant to show that Brown was acting like a "h-," not to provoke a fight.

"I squared up in a defensive stance, and that was when Brown started hopping around like he was Floyd Mayweather," Adams said. "As I put my dukes up, that is when the bodyguard stood in between us and slugged me."

Hollosy and Brown were both arrested after the melee. Hollosy's lawyers argue that Adams is just money hungry, citing the $3 million lawsuit he filed against Brown.

Brown's trial is set to begin after Hollosy's wraps up, which could be as early as Friday. The Grammy winner has been in custody since March. If convicted in the D.C. case, he faces up to six months in jail.
