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.

In the interest of forensic psychology, I will add my opinion here. Chris might have fooled around with those women, leading them to think they could get on the bus. Then when this man and his friend took a load of pictures of the incident, Chris flipped out. He didn't want to get caught in pictures with women he may have cheated with. He also flipped out the same way when Rihanna grabbed his cell phone to see the texts from other women. I think he flips out when he thinks he is going to get caught cheating, maybe out of frustration at not being able to hold onto his girlfriend.


He beat up Rihanna over his insecurity and he beat up this man also. When he beat this man up, he was yelling about being not gay. Maybe he feels insecure in his sexuality, so he feels the need to seek constant sexual attention from women, even though he is in a relationship.


He is not only mentally disturbed, but also pretty sociopathic. He takes out his insecurities on others, instead of dealing with his own messes that he creates. When he gets caught doing wrong, instead of facing it, he just tries to beat down the person who catches him at it.


I think this goes beyond immaturity. I think he really doesn't have very much of a conscience. I don't think he puts much stock in right and wrong and morality. .

Rianna will have to find someone else to fulfill her need to get knocked around.

Shouldn't be hard to do. I don't hit women, but I do have the overwhelming desire to hit her in her gap toothed, crack head face.

Great news! I hope he finally gets the punishment he deserves for being such a detriment to society. There are few things I hate more than a man who beats up women.

Yup    

What a piece of trash; your standard rapper. Gets some money, and thinks the rules don't apply to him. He's going to find out they definitely do. I hope his probation for assault is revoked thanks to this assault, and he spends a long term in jail. Jail dudes love p*ssies like this punk...

It doesn't make any difference if the girls or guys were trying to get on Brown's bus. Chris Brown physically hit another person, so he's automatically at fault. Hopefully the L.A. judge will put him in jail for 4 years to give Chris Brown time to think about his temper and psych problems.
