Chris Brown’s assault charge from his fight with a man in Washington, D.C. on Sunday morning has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.
The singer was released from jail without bail on Monday after pleading not guilty to the assault charge.
Brown’s bodyguard’s charge was also reduced to a misdemeanor.
TMZ says the charges were reduced because the victim’s injuries were minor, and there were conflicting accounts as to what happened.
It’s a big break for Brown, who is still on probation from assaulting Rihanna in 2009.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Brown got into a physical altercation with a man outside the W Hotel on Sunday, and was taken into custody for assault.
