Chris Brown arrested for assault Tue-29-Oct-13 08:58 CHRIS BROWN was arrested yesterday in Washington DC for assault. By Jay-Jay FeeneyCHRIS BROWN was arrested yesterday in Washington DC for assault.He was having his photo taken with two female fans when a random guy photo-bombed the pic. This set Chris off and he punched the guy in the face, breaking his nose.The guy was taken to hospital and may need surgery.Chris is still on probation for his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna. If a court rules his latest arrest violates his probation, he faces four-years in prison.Lucky for him the Police made a typo on the police report saying his bodyguard threw the punch, not Chris. They have since corrected it but that mistake may work in Chris’ favour. Share this Become a fan of The Edge on Facebook and on Twitter .
