ARRESTED FOR FELONY ASSAULT

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.

KARREUCHE TRAN...you are a fool!!! I'm pretty sure you have experienced first HAND his behavior, yet you defend him. Even when he has sh*t on you over and over. Were you not loved enough as a child that you would let someone treat you this way? or is money your motive?

The first story seems a little far fetched, that all the victim did was try to photo bomb a pic? Somewhere in the middle of both versions is probably the truth. Still, CB shouldn't be putting his hands on anyone

Would have done the same as Chris. And what's with the "Gay Slur Allegedly Hurled"? Does that make it worse?

I always visit this site whenever I'm feeling a bit too clean and proper. Does the trick everytime (I've unintentionally visited this site three or four times by clicking on a link). After just a few minutes of general browsing, I am able to leave here feeling like I haven't bathed in a year; feasted on week-old roadkill; vacationed in Detroit; hung out with obama; and cleaned a gas station restroom with my tongue. Thanks TMZ....you're the best!!

Karrueche did not trash Chris. She was referring to the negative comments made on her timeline about Chris.

Chris is like a teflon alley cat with 8 lives left. He lost one life when his coward ass beat up a woman(Rihanna) and was slightly punished. Felony assault in D.C. carry a possible maximum fine of $10,000 and/or imprisonment for up to 10 years. D.C. Criminal Code 22-404.01. Welcome to D.C.

I hope he goes to prison at least for the rest of my life. After that, you can deal with him.
