Chris Brown - ****File Photo** * CHRIS BROWN ARRESTED - REPORT R&B star Chris Brown has been arrested in Washington, D.C. over allegations of assault, according to a U.S. report. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was detained by cops in the early hours of Sunday morning (27Oct13) after a reported bust-up with another man outside a hotel. According to TMZ.com, Brown is currently in police custody while the unidentified other party was taken to hospital for a medical evaluation. The singer has been under a five-year probation order since assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009. (PAW/WNWCZM/ZN)** * CHRIS BROWN SLAPPED WITH HIT-AND-RUN CHARGE Embattled R&B star CHRIS BROWN is in trouble with the law again - he has been charged with hit-and-run relating to a minor car accident in Los Angeles last month (May13). The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was back in the headlines in May (13) after accidentally hitting another vehicle while driving through Beverly Hills with his on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Reports suggested the singer, who is on probation for the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna, failed to hand over the right insurance information to the other motorist before driving off, but his representative disputed the claims, insisting Brown obeyed the law and even had his lawyer, Mark Geragos, contact the woman soon after the run-in to make sure she had the correct details. However, authorities are refusing to believe his side of the story and Brown has now been slapped with two criminal counts - a charge of hit-and-run for leaving the scene without exchanging the proper information, and another for driving without a valid licence. He faces a maximum of six months behind bars for each offence, but that's not all - if the incident is considered a violation of his probation, it could land him behind bars for up to four years, according to TMZ.com. The latest legal wrangle for Brown comes just a day after fresh assault allegations emerged - Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - Sunday 5th May 2013
