Chris Brown Arrested For Felony Assault; Singer in Custody, Gay Slur Involved

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Chris Brown has been arrested for felony assault.

Insiders tell TMZ that an incident took place around 4:30 a.m. in Washington D.C., as Brown allegedly got into a fight with a man outside the W Hotel and started punching him repeatedly.

It is not believed that the singer was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

As of this writing, the 24-year-old R&B star is in police custody, while the victim is being treated for injuries at a local hospital.

The artist, of course, remains under probation for his felony beating of Rihanna in 2009 and this arrest may be grounds for a violation of those terms.

If so, he could be sentenced for at least four years in prison.

Prior to the altercation, Breezy - who claims he's a beast at sex - had been hosting a party at a nightclub nearby.

UPDATE: According to reports, a woman approached Chris Brown in front of the W Hotel and asked to take a picture with him. The singer obliged.

However, just as the picture was about to be taken, two men rushed over to get in the photo. It's unclear why, but the situation quickly turned violent.

The star allegedly, said, "I'm not into this gay s--t, I'm into boxing," and hit the alleged victim in the face. Reports say the man Chris hit never threw a punch.

The fight was then taken to the ground until it was eventually broken up, the police were called, and Brown was taken into custody. Pretty amazing.

Story developing ...

UPDATE: Chris is being held without bail and will stay in jail until at least tomorrow, when he can go before a judge. He'll likely be cut loose then.

The victim claims Brown broke his nose and he may need surgery.

The man admits that he and a friend photobombed Chris and the two women, but says he's shocked that the singer went nuts and could be "so homophobic."

He says he will "absolutely" press charges against Brown.

Sources close to Brown say the alleged victim was actually trying to get on the singer's tour bus, and Brown was simply trying to stop him from trespassing.

we can only hope. CB is a total disaster. what is insane is how the black community just honored him for being so wonderful. and blacks wonder why white people think black people are all f@cked up.

charlie sheen was beloved by america and made $2M/year. plus, his only crime was being difficult at work, not beating up his gf. so to compare him with the negro ghetto tendencies of CB are like comparing, well, Blacks to Whites - total opposites! BITCH!
