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 a closet homosexual. That's why he has so many anger issues, because he doesn't want to admit it. He probably got in a fight with Rhianna that night cause when he got a text it was from a man, and he didn't want her to find out. He must hate himself and uses gay slurs as a projection of his anger towards himself.

He would not have been taken to jail if he was only trying to stop the guy from getting on the bus. Get real

Seriously i believe that this should be the last Straw.Not only should he be charged with felony assault. He should now be charged with a hate crime considering the fact he used a gay slur in the proccess of the assault. Chris Brown should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and made a example of .Not to mention this is a violation of his probation.If this had been a average joe he would have been locked up a long time ago

Does the guy look like Rihanna? Maybe Chris Brown mistook him for her.

Actually I guess you should be on the plane w/ them. B/c the world is not a better place w/ undercover murderers like yourself. Them doing them and rich and famous has nothing to do w/ your life. You would probably still be a loser just wishing for another celebrity news to break so you could hate on them. Where would your world be w/o them. Probably rounding up regular people on a plane. You insane freak.
