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.

Gay slur hurled?!? OH NO! Bring out the National Guard, the Anti-Free-Speech Police, and the Thought Police. Protected class of people based upon their sexual proclivities (that's putting it nicely). Wake me up when it's over!

Here we go AGAIN; the same angry, violent young black man who beat up his defenseless girlfriend, Rhianna, has now committed ANOTHER assault. Guess he just doesn't get the message. Put him in prison for a few years and let him find out what it's like to be on the recieving end of a beating. They're gonna love that young black man on the cell block.

In prison, Chris will be washing some Esse's underwear in exchange for ramen noodles. Did I say he'd be taking it up the a$$?

Tran hangs out with beat-up boy, uses the word 'y'all three times in a tweet, and wants to know what's wrong with US? LOL

Karrueche - y'all says y'all so much it loses its meaning and becomes repetitive. Maybe y'all's parents could buy y'all a dictionary and y'all could look up some adverbs and adjectives.
