Singer Chris Brown was arrested on Sunday (October 27th) for a fight which resulted in a felony assault charge. According to TMZ, the R&B singing sensation was arrested around 4:30 am in Washington, D.C. in front of the W hotel after an alleged gay slur was made during an argument and Brown punched the victim in the face. According to reports the victim never threw a punch and had to go to the hospital.
The alleged victim tells TMZ ... he and a friend were hanging out at the
W when they saw 2 women about to take a picture with Brown. The victim
-- who says he's not a Chris Brown fan -- says he and his buddy photo
bombed the 2 women 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 sources and the alleged victim tell TMZ ... 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 tell TMZ ... the alleged victim is full of
BS. He was NOT trying to take a pic with Chris ... he was trying to 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 they were stopped, and that's when the victim and his friend made
Law enforcement sources 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 tells TMZ he doesn't understand why Brown was "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 -- and he's already hired a lawyer.
Looks like Brown is possibly facing 4 years in prison because he is still on probation for domestic assault against ex. girlfriend Rihanna.
Chris Brown partied before the felony assault which could put him in jail for 4 years, in Washington D.C. The singer was hosting a party at the Park and 14th Nightclub before the incident.
