In a move that surprised the world over, Chris Brown was arrested for allegedly striking a male human being this morning in Washington D.C.. The argument reportedly took place outside a W Hotel at 4:30 am.
Brown was with his bodyguard, who was also arrested. Law enforcement confirms that neither Brown nor his bodyguard were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The victim of the reported attack, who is claiming serious injury, was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.
If convicted, Brown could face up to four years of prison time for the incident, which violates his 2009 probation order following the battery of then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was also involved in scuffles with rapper and nemesis Drake, and later with Frank Ocean, neither of which resulted in criminal charges. BET
Sources told TMZ that Brown announced, “I’m not into this gay shit, I’m into boxing,” before striking the man, which is a disastrously self-contradictory statement.
