Chris Brown: Charge Reduced to Misdemeanor Assault

Chris Brown

Chris Brown’s assault charge has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor following an altercation over the weekend.

The 24-year-old singer appeared in a Washington, D.C. courtroom today in leg irons and handcuffs, where he entered a plea of not guilty.

TMZ reports that it’s unclear as to who threw a punch to the alleged victim’s face. The original police report said Brown’s bodyguard was responsible, and that’s why the charge against Chris has been reduced.

Brown was arrested for felony assault on Sunday morning in Washington, D.C. after allegedly attacking Isaac Parker, 20, outside a hotel and breaking his nose.

The two allegedly got into an argument, and Chris was quoted as saying, “I’m not down with that gay shit, I’m into boxing,” before punching him in the nose.

Chris has been released without bail. He was also ordered to stay 100 yards away from the victim.

He was joined at the courthouse by his family and friends including his mother Joyce Hawkins and Trey Songz. Upon exiting, he was greeted by hordes of screaming fans and media.

    However, he can still face a year or two in prison if he’s charged with a probation violation.

    You people are so annoying & judgemental. Always quick to say ‘special treatment’ when he has been in jail for over a day! If he was being treated special because he was a celeb then he would have gotten out immediately after being booked! The charge has been lowered to a misdeamoner because the felony charge was WEAK to begin with! It’s still unclear who started the fight and if Chris even hit anybody to begin with! The police report is even inconsistent and it has been changed twice! There’s no proof that Chris hit anyone or if he did that it wasn’t provoked or in self defense. Being that the charge was lowered so quickly its clear that there is more to the story than what was originally reported. Learn how to think for yourselves & stop being so quick to judge and rush to conclusions. SMH

    @Me Damnit!, on top of that, despite police report, Brown’s camp unconsciously admitted that he was involved in fighting(and possibly he threw the 1st punch).
    They clearly stated yesterday that Somebody tried to get access to his bus, and that brown’s punches were thrown in self defense of that

    Andy Reply:

    @Me Damnit!, AMEN! Honestly, the apparent homophobic thing he said sounds straight bullsh!t. I highly believe there is more in here and the victim is telling 1% of the truth. None of us is sure, so we have to wait but I believe this is too much. If he really does it he should be putted in jail FOREVER. I mean, this is like his millionth mistake, is he that stupid?

    Disgusting. These moronic, fatherless young women screaming for him as he leaves a jail house for assault. All the while he laughs and smiling, getting away with it yet again.

    Despicable.

    The result from this will be, a song about getting off, haters, bitches, money, cars, clothes, and etc! The arrogance continues! I don’t hate him or trying taint his image/reputation (which he single-handedly done on his own) but will he learn from this is the question?

    Anyone have any proof Chris hit anyone? They just throw you in jail now if someone says you hit them? Chris has always loved his fans I dont see him ever hitting someone for trying to take a picture with him. These people were probably trying to push their way onto his tour bus(example look at this crowd at the courthouse) his bodyguard stopped them plain and simple its trespassing.

    Funny how the headlines quote what this so called victim said and not what Chris stated. They threw him in jail why? Because he is Chris Brown. Up next in the headlines “So called victim sues Chris Brown” blah blah they will now try to get money from him of course.

    I’m a Chris Brown fan but I’m not really gonna complain about people judging him. You may or may not be right but the truth is everyone is innocent till proven guilty so if there was no evidence, then he is and should be free to go whether anyone like it or not.

    Omg he is so ugly now :( He use to be so cute!!! I think all that stress and drugs is doing something to him. He needs a longgggggggggg break after he comes out with X.

  19. Zeeeee ^.^

    It really irks me how people will not leave this man alone. Like seriously. After “X” & his tour, he needs a brake to get himself together because he is a very talented artist, actor, etc. & has a lot going for himself.
