Chris Brown arrested for alleged assault
Controversial rapper Chris Brown was arrested on Sunday following an altercation outside of the W Hotel in Washington, where it is alleged Brown assaulted a man after regaling him with homophobic slurs.
Brown and his bodyguard have been charged with felony assault.
According to reports on entertainment site TMZ, Brown and the victim got into an argument when the victim attempted to jump in on a photo the star was taking with a couple of female fans.
"'I'm not into this gay shit, I'm into boxing," Brown allegedly said as he punched the victim in the face.
The victim was said to have received a broken nose from the hit and was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries.
Brown's lawyers and bodyguard are contesting the victim's version of events, alleging the victim attempted to board the singer’s tour bus when the altercation occurred.
Brown is currently on probation for felony domestic violence for an assault perpetrated on his then girlfriend, pop star, Rhianna.
