After spending 36 hours in a Washington, D.C., prison for a fight he was involved in over the weekend, Chris Brown was released without bail and charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony on Monday afternoon (Oct. 28).

Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested on Sunday morning (Oct. 27) after being involved in a “physical altercation” in front of the W Hotel in D.C. Brown allegedly hit a man around 4:30AM following a party that took place at the establishment.

The two appeared in front of a full court, fitted with handcuffs and leg shackles. Brown was ordered to report to his probation officer within the next two days and stay at least 100 yards away from the man he hit. Both men are scheduled to appear in court again on Nov. 24.

“Christopher Brown committed no crime,” his lawyer Danny Onorato said after the court hearing. “We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and his property, as he is authorized to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing.”

Brown’s arrest is a very dangerous one for the singer is already on probation for the domestic violence conviction he received for attacking ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 — he was charged with a felony. While the Los Angeles district attorney’s office has been quiet about this recent arrest, prosecutors have been carefully monitoring Brown’s good behavior regarding the rules of his current probation in California.
