Singer Chris Brown Arrested, Accused of Felony Assault TMZ
Singer Chris Brown was arrested after allegedly attacking a man outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C., after Brown reportedly became enraged that the victim had photobombed a picture, reports TMZ.com.
Brown was about to take a photo with two women, when the man and his friend apparently photobombed the singer, who then reportedly "went nuts" and punched the man in the face. The victim claims he may need surgery after his nose was broken, the story adds.
The singer allegedly said, "I'm not into this gay s**t, I'm into boxing," before striking the man.
But TMZ notes that there is another side to the 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," the piece adds.
Brown and his bodyguard, who was also arrested, remained in jail Sunday but were scheduled to appear before a magistrate today, the piece adds.
"Brown is still on probation in the Rihanna beating case and this could be grounds for violating his probation -- which means he could be sentenced to prison for nearly 4 years ... worst case scenario for him," TMZ notes.
