Chris Brown pleads not guilty

As predicted earlier today, Chris Brown plead not guilty to felony assault and making criminal threats, according to TMZ:

With ex girlfriend Rihanna nowhere in sight, Brown showed up at L.A. County criminal courthouse to face the music for allegedly beating the crap out of her back in February.
Sources inside the courtroom say Chris’ mom spent the entire preliminary hearing either in tears or praying for her 19-year-old son. We’re told a handful of Chris’ friends and four bodyguards were also there to show support.

Praying for her son? Yeah, let’s pray Chris Brown doesn’t have to go to jail and be held responsible for his actions. I’m sure Jesus will hop right on that one just as soon as he’s done answering my prayer that there’ll be no pregnant dancers at the strip club tonight. Don’t let me down, JC.
