If you thought things have been quiet on the Chris Brown front lately, fear not, because he was arrested early Sunday morning in Washington, D.C., on charges of felony assault.

According to TMZ, the alleged victim claims that when he tried to horn in on a photo Brown was taking with two women, Brown reportedly said, “I'm not into this gay s***, I'm into boxing,” and allegedly cold-cocked the guy in the nose. The man says he will need surgery and he's pressing charges.

Brown was taken into custody and spent the night in jail, according to TMZ. He's still on probation, so if convicted, he could be looking at prison time.
