Getty ImagesChris Brown spent his very first day in jail Sunday after allegedly getting into a messy brawl in Washington D.C. at 4:30am, but now he's a free man. TMZ reports the rapper was let go without bail after assault charges were reduced from felony to misdemeanor. Brown pleaded not guilty.
The whole thing went down outside Brown's D.C. hotel, when the victim alleges he was just trying to take a photo with the star and things turned ugly. Brown instead says the dude was trying to get onto his tour bus and his body guard "handled it." The bodyguard was also arrested and his charges have since been changed to misdemeanor.
The victim suffered a fractured nasal bone.
So Brown might be out of jail, but this might not be the last of his trouble with the law. TMZ also reports that the L.A. County Probation Dept. has launched an investigation into this latest arrest to determine if it's a violation of his probation, stemming from the 2009 Rihanna beating case. If so, Brown could do four years in prison. The probation department's findings will be forwarded to the judge in the Rihanna case and then it will be determined if the star's probation should be revoked.
