Chris Brown has just put his probation in jeopardy, RumorFix is reporting.
The R&B singer, who is on probation for beating Rihanna in 2009, has been arrested for “felony assault,” RumorFix has confirmed with Metropolitan Police in Washington, D.C.
A public information officer tells us Chris was arrested at around 4:25 a.m. Sunday in front of the W Hotel after he and his bodyguard Christopher Hollosy “got into a physical altercation with another adult male.”
Although there are reports that the unidentified man was hit after he wanted to take a picture with the music star, the police would only say the fight “did have something to do with photos.”
Chris and his bodyguard were arrested. Officers says the victim’s name will not be released, but he sustained injuries to his face.
DC police do not release mug shots.
The timing of this arrest couldn’t be worse, Chris is scheduled to appear before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin on November 20 for a probation status hearing.
