Chris Brown Arrested After Alleged Homophobic Assault

Updated Monday at 4:51 p.m. PST

Has anyone gotten more lucky breaks than Chris Brown? (Well, besides Lindsay Lohan??) 

Brown's felony assault charge has been reduced to a misdemeanor.

TMZ reports:

Chris Brown just got cut a big break ... the assault charge has just been reduced from a FELONY to a MISDEMEANOR ... and Chris pled not guilty.  Chris has just been released without bail. He's also required to stay 100 yards away from the victim.

Chris had been ordered to take a drug test, but the judge just vacated that order.  It's standard in such cases to order a drug test, but that has been cancelled.

We're not legal experts, but we'd assume that the charges being reduced to a misdemeanor also means that Brown will most likely not be cited for violating his parole? Any legal eagles care to chime in on that one?

Original Post

Chris Brown could be headed to jail as a result of felony assault charges that he now faces after allegedly breaking a man's nose and yelling a homophobic statement at the victim. The incident occurred around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday in Washington D.C. outside of Brown's hotel.

TMZ reports:

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 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.

Brown is currently on probation for his previous 2009 assault on Rihanna. This latest incident, if seen as a violation of his probation, could see him facing up to four years in prison. He's currently in jail and is scheduled for a court hearing on Monday.

Think Brown is headed to prison, Instincters?


Chris Brown was taking a picture with two female friends. Why couldn't the "victim" just leave him alone. Don't start things and them cry victim when you get hurt. If this person had left Chris Brown alone and minded his own business none of this would have happened. It's time people start accepting responsibility for their own actions.

Your right people should accepted responsibility for their own actions.  Which means that Chris Brown should plead guilty.   There was no reason that any punches should have been thrown..   Chris Brown has a short fuse.  And because of that he should be court ordered for anger management.    

Are you being ironic Stone? If you want to extend your point, Chris Brown could stand to take some responsibility for his CHOICE to punch someone in this situation. ESPECIALLY given how his track record on resolving his problems via his fists has worked out so far.

If he wasn't into it before he will be now. There are plenty of bubbas to take care of him in there. I wonder what the highest bidder will pay to get a piece of his ass......literally and figuratively speaking that is 

He is unbelievable!!! Even if what he says is true and the dude was trying to get on his bus, where was his security??? Isn't it there job to prevent that kind of thing?? If someone was trying to get on Katy Perry's bus do you think she'd take it on herself to punch them in the face???? His explanation makes no sense!!!! I hope they throw him in jail and throw away the key but they won't. He'll get another slap on the wrist. The man is dangerous and violent and he's not going to change.

If it talks like a douche bag, hits like a douche bag, and has an assault history like a douche bag, it's  probably a douche bag. 
Good riddance.

Will be no loss to society.

Jail seems like a nice place for a violent guy like that !! I wish they would do this to more violent people, whether the voilence is agains gay, or not!!

If he was trying to get on Chris' tour bus, where was his security?  That's their job.  

Exactly.   Anyone else catch a whiff of bullshit with that trying-to-get-on-the-tour-bus "explanation"?

What? He's a violent jerk? I am stunned....yeah.....

Girl he can hit me with his huge cock between his legs any day!

Huge cock?  I've seen his selfie.  Your impression of huge is laughable.

I believe Chris is very much capable of doing such horrific acts considering his history. If at all he has done this then he must go to jail and suffer. The statement that he made is unacceptable.
