A judge has convicted singer Chris Brown’s bodyguard of an assault charge following a two-day trial that provided a preview of a similar case against Brown.

Judge Patricia Wynn on Monday convicted Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, of a single count of misdemeanor assault. Brown’s trial on the same charge will come before the judge next.

Both men were arrested in October after a Maryland man said Brown and Hollosy punched him outside a Washington hotel.

Hollosy told police he punched the man after he 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 with two women.

Brown told police he didn’t hit the man.
