Because Chris Brown is smart and misunderstood and gentle like a puppy, he’s been arrested a slew of times — most recently on Sunday morning for felony assault.
Seems Chris was hosting a party at the Park and 14th nightclub in DC on Saturday night before proving that old adage saying “nothing good ever happens after midnight.” And that other old adage saying “Chris Brown is a rage monster who’s an easy target for anyone looking for their 15 minutes so maybe his dumb ass shouldn’t be out at 4am.”
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … 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. We’re told the alleged victim never threw a punch.
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.
Of course Breezy’s posse tells a different story:
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 their move.
Brown and his bodyguard were both arrested, and when you get your ass thrown in a DC clink on a weekend, you stay there until a magistrate can see you on Monday. So that’s where he still is — and since he’s already on probation in California for beating the pretty off Rihanna‘s face a few years ago, he could wind up in a metric shit-ton of trouble.
The “victim,” meanwhile, has already lawyered up and is probably just deciding how many zeros his check should have.
UPDATE: The felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and Chris was released without bail. And back in L.A., the suits are deciding whether he violated his probation. If so, he could face four years in jail. (HAHAHAHAHA JK. Rich people don’t do time.)
