Monday was a busy day in the Los Angeles County court system for oft-embattled musicians.
Kanye West reached a no-contest plea deal over a July 19 tussle with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport. West had previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of criminal battery and attempted grand theft in the incident, in which he allegedly attacked paparazzo photographer Danny Ramos.
L.A. County prosectutors had earlier declined to file charges stemming from a separate incident in which West struck a man who used a racial epithet against him and his wife, Kim Kardashian, at a Beverly Hills chiropractor's office. The matter was resolved after West reached a civil compromise with the alleged victim.
Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, denied all charges against his client and asked that Brown be released so he could attend a separate court hearing in Washington, D.C., on April 17 stemming from another misdemeanor assault charge.
In November, Brown was ordered to go through 90 days of anger management treatment and drug rehab and perform community service at a live-in facility.
