    Chris Brown and his bodyguard were arrested and charged with felony assault on Sunday, Oct. 27, after an altercation with another male in Washington D.C., E! News confirms.
     
    According to DC Metro Police Communications Director Gwendolyn Crump, police were called after a fight ensued outside of the W Hotel at around 4:25 a.m.
     
    The victim was transported to a local hospital, and was treated and later released.
     
    The DC PIO office says that the R&B singer and his bodyguard will likely be held until Monday due to the weekend, and will go to court tomorrow.
     
    Police are not aware of any relation or connection that victim may have had with the 24-year-old performer.

    TMZ was first to report the story.
     
    E! News reached out to Brown's rep for comment.
     
    Brown is currently serving probation stemming from his 2009 assault incident with his then-girlfriend Rihanna. His probation will end in a year's time, on Aug. 25, 2014. Any arrest could be considered a violation of this probation, which could result in jail time.

    The Grammy winner recently opened up to the UK's Guardian and said it was "probably the biggest wake-up call for me," saying, "I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy."

    Since then, he has gone on to win a Grammy, and release three more albums, saying he wanted to prove people wrong—that he could make a comeback after it.

    And although it seems he accomplished that goal, Brown hit another snag in August when a judge revoked his probation and gave him 1,000 additional hours of community service after he was involved in a hit-and-run accident earlier this summer.

    Referring to the judge's "comprise" ruling as vindictive, Brown said, "Community service, that s--t is a b-tch. I'll be honest – and you can quote me on that – that is a motherf--ker there. For me, I think it's more of a power trip for the DA. I can speak freely now, because I don't really care what they say about it, but as far as, like, the 1,000 extra hours they gave me, that's totally fricking bananas.
