Gay Slur Allegedly Hurled

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown was arrested in Washington D.C. this morning for FELONY assault after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... at around 4:30 AM Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W Hotel on K Street and allegedly punched him once in the face.  We're told the alleged victim never threw a punch. 

The alleged victim tells TMZ ... he and a friend were hanging out at the W when they saw 2 women about to take a picture with Brown.  The victim -- who says he's not a Chris Brown fan -- says he and his buddy photo bombed the 2 women and Chris went nuts, punching him in the face and BREAKING HIS NOSE.  He went to the hospital and says he may need surgery as early as tomorrow. 

Law enforcement sources and the alleged victim tell TMZ ... before striking the man, Chris said, "I'm not down with that gay s**t, I feel like boxing."  After Chris punched the man, the fight was taken to the ground.

Sources connected with Chris tell TMZ ... the alleged victim is full of BS.  He was NOT trying to take a pic with Chris ... he was trying to get on Chris' tour bus, and Brown was simply trying to stop a trespass.  The sources say before the incident the 2 girls tried to get on the bus but they were stopped, and that's when the victim and his friend made their move.

Law enforcement sources say Chris did not appear to be under the influence of anything.

Chris and his bodyguard -- who was also arrested -- will stay in jail today.  Under DC law Brown can't get bail so he'll appear before a magistrate Monday, and until then he'll stay behind bars. 

The alleged victim tells TMZ he doesn't understand why Brown was "so homophobic" to hurl such a slur.  And get this ... the victim says he would have accepted an apology at the scene, but now he will absolutely press charges -- and he's already hired a lawyer.

Brown is still on probation in the Rihanna beating case and this could be grounds for violating his probation -- which means he could be sentenced to prison for nearly 4 years ... worst case scenario for him.

Before the incident, Chris had been hosting a party (pic below) at the nearby Park and 14th nightclub.

Chris Brown is an idiot. But give me a break with this "homophobic slur" bullCRAP. Homosexuality is not normal. It's meant to be a put down. Homophobia - An expression of verbal terrorism used to attack, demean, and silence those who believe marriage is a lifelong union between one man and one woman. Understanding biology and the complementary nature of the male and female genders is not a neurotic phobia.

Its amazing that certain people just continuously get into physical altercations with other people. Like, as if it happens everyday in the course of their life. Most people are never arrested or even get into a fight in their lifetimes, this guy has done it on at least 3 or 4 known occasions in the last few years.

Who cares about the slur? Name calling is legal. You're allowed to be a douche.

The story is him punching the dude in the face.

ONLY COMMENT IS.....I hope this time he cant buy his way out of all his violent behavior and thug act. I hope there are witness who will not take money to shut up, but you know the cash will be spread around to keep this a-hole out of prison where he belongs.

Once a douche bag always a douche bag. Maybe the DA will pull their head out and recommend a bit more than community service for this dirt bag.

This is not serious enough for this P.O.S. to actually do any real time, even though it's count 9 or 10, he'll slide once again. What will be nice is if somebody can beat the S out of him and get a slap on the wrist, that would be funny.
