R & B singer Chris Brown’s felony battery case was heard again in front of a Hillsborough County judge Monday morning. 

Brown wasn’t in court and the hearing lasted a few seconds with both sides agreeing to a June 6th court date. 

The Grammy-award winner ran into trouble in Tampa a couple years ago during an appearance at Club Aja in Channelside. 

A witness in the crowd recorded some of the commotion using a cell phone. 

Tampa police investigators said Brown punched a photographer during the event. 

That photographer told News Channel 8 news the impact sent him into a wall and left him with a busted lip.

The photographer now plans to sue. 

The state attorney’s office spent months building a case and formally charged Brown. 

The singer’s attorney didn’t want to comment Monday but previously told News Channel 8 Brown in being wrongfully accused in the case. 

At some point brown will be expected to appear in court in Tampa. 

The next hearing is set for June 6.
