He could be in deep trouble...
Chris Brown has been arrested for felony assault in Washington, D.C. TMZ reports that the notoriously-troubled pop singer was taken into custody after attacking a man outside of a hotel on Sunday morning at about 4:30 AM.
According to the report, Brown was outside a hotel in D.C. when two women approached him and asked to take a picture with him. Just as the picture was about to be taken, two men rushed over to get into the picture. Brown responded by saying, "I'm not into this gay s**t, I'm into boxing" and then threw a punch at the alleged victim. The fight went to the ground from there. The alleged victim has confirmed the report to TMZ and said Brown broke his nose; he will likely need surgery as early as tomorrow morning.
According to law enforcement, Brown was not intoxicated and the alleged victim never threw a punch. Brown was with his bodyguard and was did not appear to be under the influence of anything.
Of course, Brown is still on probation for his domestic assault case, and this could well violate his parole. If that happens he could face prison time for the probation violation, plus anything for the assault.
