WASHINGTON (AP) — Singer Chris Brown's trial on an assault charge in Washington has been delayed until later this week.

A judge on Monday delayed the trial's start until Wednesday while attorneys work out issues over testimony from Brown's bodyguard.

Bodyguard Chris Hollosy was convicted Monday of assault. Brown's attorneys want Hollosy to testify on Brown's behalf, but Hollosy plans to appeal.

Both men were arrested in October after a man accused them of punching him outside a Washington hotel. Hollosy told police that he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown's tour bus. But 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.

Court papers say the man's nose was fractured.
