Chris Brown was arrested in Washington D.C. this morning for FELONY assault after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel.
Law enforcement say at around 4:30 AM Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W Hotel on K Street and allegedly punched him once in the face– the alleged victim never threw a punch.
The alleged victim say he and a friend were hanging out at the W when they saw 2 woman about to take a picture with Brown. The victim says he and his buddy photo bombed the 2 woman and Chris went nuts, punching him in the face and BREAKING HIS NOSE. He went to the hospital and says he may need surgery as early as tomorrow.
Law enforcement say before striking the man, Chris said, “I’m not into this gay s**t, I’m into boxing.” After Chris punched the man, the fight was taken to the ground.
Sources connected with Chris say the alleged victim is full of BS. He was NOT trying to take a pic with Chris, he was trying get on Chris’ tour bus, and Brown was simply trying to stop a trespass. The sources say before the incident the 2 girls tried to get on the bus but the were stopped, and that’s when the victim and his friend made their move.
Law enforcement say Chris did not appear to be under the influence of anything. Chris and his bodyguard — who was also arrested — will stay in jail today. Under DC law Brown can’t get bail so he’ll appear before a magistrate Monday, and until then he’ll stay behind bars.
The alleged victim say he doesn’t understand why Brown was “so homophobic” to hurl such a slur and he would have accepted an apology at the scene, but now he will absolutely press charges — and he’s already hired a lawyer.
Brown is still on probation in the Rihanna case and this could be grounds for violating his probation — which means he could be sentenced to prison for nearly 4 years.
