Chris Brown, who lives in Los Angeles and is originally from Virginia, has been involved in a number of incidents since the 2009 arrest. He was initially sued for a nightclub brawl that allegedly erupted between his entourage and that of musician Drake, at the time believed to be a lover of Rihanna.Brown also fought with singer Frank Ocean and others after Ocean parked in Brown's space at a recording studio in Los Angeles.
But this time, Brown was arrested for getting into an early-morning altercation outside a Washington, D.C. hotel.
The slanging match happened at 4:30 a.m. local time outside the W Hotel on 15th street near the White House, D.C. Brown, 24, and 35-year-old Chris Hollosy were charged with felony assault. They were both detained while an investigation is ongoing.
A woman approached Brown to take a picture with him, but then two other men stopped by to get into the photo and Brown allegedly punched one of the men in the face.
"I'm not into this gay s**t, I'm into boxing," Brown said before swinging at one of the men, the sources alleged.
During the confrontation one adult male was injured and was reportedly taken to a hospital. But the victim had been released from the hospital as of early Sunday afternoon.
Brown's publicists and attorney, Mark Geragos, are yet to respond.
