|Chris Brown was arrested in Washington D.C. this morning for FELONY assault after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel.|
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W Hotel at 15th and K and allegedly began punching him. The incident occurred at about 4:30 AM.
Our law enforcement sources say Brown did not appear to be under the influence of anything at the time of the incident.
Brown is currently in custody. As for the other person, we're told he's being evaluated at a D.C. hospital.
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.
8:25 PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ how the fight was triggered. A woman approached Brown in front of the W Hotel and asked to take a picture with him. As the pic was about to be taken, 2 men rushed over to get in the photo. We're told Chris then said, "I'm not into this gay s**t, I'm into boxing," and threw a punch at the alleged victim. The fight was then taken to the ground.
