Chris Brown has been arrested for alleged felony assault.
According to TMZ, today Chris Brown was arrested in Washington, D.C. this morning after allegedly attacking a man outside the W Hotel. The two apparently got into an argument around 4:30 AM, which ended with Brown punching the other man. The incident is being considered a felony assault.
The R&B singer is currently in custody, and law enforcement sources say he didn’t appear to be under the influence during the altercation. The other man is being evaluated at a D.C. hospital.
Because Brown is still on probation, a conviction would be grounds for violating his probation, which means he could face up to 4 years in prison.
(Update: Incident Allegedly Started Over A Photo Bomb)
It turns out Chris Brown was hosting a Howard Homecoming party at The Park at Fourteenth Nightclub before heading back to his hotel this morning. After the above-mentioned altercation, both he and his bodyguard were apparently handcuffed and taken in jail, where they both remain for the time being.
According to TMZ:
“TMZ just spoke with the victim. He tells us Chris broke his nose and he may need surgery as early as tomorrow morning. The victim confirmed he and a friend photo bombed the two women who were taking a picture with Brown when Chris went nuts. The victim says he’s not a Chris Brown fan … and was just hanging with a couple girls at the hotel when he saw the singer outside. The victim says he doesn’t understand why Brown would be “so homophobic” to hurl such a slur. And get this … the victim says he would have accepted an apology at the scene, but now he will absolutely press charges.”
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ how the fight was triggered. Two woman approached Brown in front of the W Hotel and asked to take a picture with him. As the pic was about to be taken, 2 men rushed over to get in the photo. We’re told Chris then said, “I’m not into this gay s**t, I’m into boxing,” and threw a punch at the alleged victim. The fight was then taken to the ground.”
