A strong nominee for “most typed sentence” in Hip Hop over the past year: Chris Brown has been arrested. TMZ reports that Brown was arrested for alleged felony assault outside of the W Hotel at 15th and K St earlier this morning (October 27).
According to the report, Brown got into an argument with a man and things escalated into a physical confrontation. The unidentified man was injured during the fight to the point of needing medical attention and is currently in a Washington, D.C. hospital.
Brown still has to comply with his probation for his assault of Rihanna four years ago which stipulates legal infractions could result in up to four years in prison. Brown recently avoided such a fate this past August after his hit and run case was dropped.
TMZ’s “law enforcement sources” detailed how the entire physical confrontation resulted over a poorly chosen photobomb by two men:
Two woman approached Brown in front of the W Hotel and asked to take a picture with him. As the pic was about to be taken, 2 men rushed over to get in the photo. We’re told Chris then said, “I’m not into this gay s**t, I’m into boxing,” and threw a punch at the alleged victim. The fight was then taken to the ground.
Chris Brown is currently in custody.
