UPDATE: Chris Brown charged with felony
UPDATED 1:49 p.m.
WASHINGTON – Chris Brown and a bodyguard were arrested Sunday morning and charged with felony assault, the Washington Metropolitan Police Department said.
The singer and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were allegedly involved in an altercation with another man outside the W Hotel at 4:25 a.m., police said.
The two were taken into custody and were being held at the 2nd district police station, police said.
The alleged victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries, police spokesman Anthony Clay told CNN.
Brown, 24, is on probation in California for a felony domestic violence conviction involving his former girlfriend Rihanna. Any arrest could be considered a violation of that probation, which could result in jail time.
Prosecutors filed probation violation charges against him twice in the past year, resulting in the judge ordering him to complete an additional 1,000 hours of community service.
