Chris Brown was arrested early Sunday in Washington after a fight broke out near the W Hotel, police said, complicating an already snarled legal history for the Grammy Award-winning singer. Brown, 24, was charged with felony assault in an altercation that started just before 4:30 a.m., D.C. police spokesman Paul Metcalf said Sunday morning. Brown was being held in police custody until today, Metcalf said. A man was injured in the fight and reportedly taken to a hospital, police said, but they did not identify him or give details on his injuries. He had been released from the hospital as of early Sunday afternoon, Metcalf said. Brown remains on probation for the 2009 felony beating of his on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna just before the Grammy Awards. The photos of Rihanna’s bruised face caused outrage among many fans.
