This year’s Howard Homecoming weekend will definitely go down in the books as one of the most memorable. Singer Chris Brown was in Washington DC to host a Howard Homecoming event Saturday, October 26 at The Park at 14th alongside August Alsina for one of the most anticipated events for the weekend.
The party at The Park began at 5pm yesterday with celebrity hosts usually not appearing until 11pm – 1am later that evening. From several sources, Chris Brown’s hosting responsibilities at The Park were carried out fine and the venue closed at around 3am.
The W Hotel is located very close to The Park and is a popular location for guests and celebs to stay and lounge whenever special events take place in town.
According to TMZ.com:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … at around 4:30 AM Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W Hotel on K Street and allegedly punched him once in the face. We’re told the alleged victim never threw a punch.
Sources connected with Chris tell TMZ … the alleged victim is full of BS. He was NOT trying to take a pic with Chris … he was trying to get on Chris’ tour bus, and Brown was simply trying to stop a trespass. The sources say before the incident the 2 girls tried to get on the bus but they were stopped, and that’s when the victim and his friend made their move.
Law enforcement sources say Chris did not appear to be under the influence of anything.
Chris and his bodyguard — who was also arrested — will stay in jail today. Under DC law Brown can’t get bail so he’ll appear before a magistrate Monday, and until then he’ll stay behind bars.
The alleged victim tells TMZ he doesn’t understand why Brown was “so homophobic” to hurl such a slur. And get this … the victim says he would have accepted an apology at the scene, but now he will absolutely press charges — and he’s already hired a lawyer.
Brown, 24, was charged with felony assault in an incident that started just before 4:30 a.m., D.C. police spokesman Paul Metcalf said Sunday morning. Chris Hollosy, 35, also was arrested on felony assault charges, Metcalf said. Police believe the two men were together during the incident but said they couldn’t confirm any relationship between the suspects.
“There was a physical altercation, which resulted in the victim sustaining injuries,” Metcalf said. Brown and Hollosy were being held in police custody until Monday, Metcalf said.
Unfortunately as of August 17, 2013 Chris Brown’s probation was reinstated because “he did not properly report his previous community service hours.” With his probation recently being reinstated and yesterday’s assault incident, things do not look too promising for Chris Brown.
