Chris Brown Grammys Reuters 660

Please don’t judge him? Chris Brown was arrested in Washington DC this morning on Felony Assault charges, after he allegedly attacked a man outside of a hotel; this according to TMZ.

An argument reportedly ensued outside of the W Hotel around 4:30am, where it’s said Chris punched the victim once in the face. This serves as a big deal, considering Chris is still on probation from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. If convicted he could face up to 4 years in prison.

Update: Facing the judge today, Chris plead not guilty to this past weekend’s turn of events. He left the courtroom with his head held high, and his felony charge being reduced to a misdemeanor assault.
