Chris Brown arraignment postponed

March 5, 2009 |  4:56 pm

During a court hearing in downtown Los Angeles today, an attorney for Chris Brown postponed his arraignment until April 6. Brown also signed a "waiver of presence" that the judge agreed to, meaning that he would not have to appear in court for mostly procedural matters.

Brown signed the waiver in open court. The judge told Brown that he was ordered not to "annoy, harass, or threaten ..." (garbled). The judge asked [Donald] Etra if Rihanna required a stay-away order, to which Etra responded "Ms. Fenty does not require that type of order."
