The new R&B bad boy, Chris Brown, and a bodyguard were arrested outside the W hotel in downtown DC. Brown had just finished hosting a party at the Park at Fourteenth for Howard Homecoming. Of course there are three sides to the story and the truth is somewhere in between. First we heard the alleged victim photobombed Chris Brown while he was taking some photos with a couple young ladies.
According to reports, Brown said, “I’m not with that gay $%*. I’m into boxing.” and began punching the victim along with his bodyguard getting in on the action. Both Brown and his bodyguard were arrested and charged with felony assault.
Now we’re hearing Chris Brown denies ever throwing a punch. According to Brown’s statement, the alleged victim tried to force his way on the tour bus and his bodyguard “handled” it. According to the victim’s statement, he attempted to get a photo with Chris Brown and Brown allegedly responded, “I ain’t down wit that gay s***.” The victim allegedly told cops he replied, “Why you hoing?” That’s when Brown allegedly said, “I feel like boxing.” The victim claims Chris Brown swung on him and that’s when the bodyguard allegedly hit the victim in the face.
Early reports said that Brown would be charged with felony assault but the charge has been reduced to a misdemeanor. Chris Brown pled not guilty and is required to stay 100 feet away from the victim. The victim, identified as 20-year-old Parker Adams, suffered a nasal fracture and was treated at a nearby hospital. He says he would have accepted an apology at the scene but now plans to press charges. Brown is currently on probation in California for the 2009 felony domestic violence conviction involving Rihanna. He could face jail time for violation of probation and is expected in court for a hearing on Nov. 20.
I really think Chris Brown needs to lay low for a while. His name is constantly making negative headlines for his behavior. Although I feel the media is still out to stalk his every move and misstep, Chris Brown is no different from any other male (or female) that makes mistakes in their 20s. It’s just that monster we call fame that makes it 10x worse. Chris Brown should do everything he can to watch his temper and keep people around him that understand he has a lot to lose. Between the wild partying, twitter rants, shady car accidents, and now this assault…Chris needs to take a long vacation and just sit down…no, lay down…and take a nap.
