Chris Brown has been released from jail.
The singer was in court on Monday, a day after his arrest for allegedly assaulting a 20-year-old man named Isaac Parker outside a Washington, D.C. hotel.
TMZ reports Chris' felony assault charge was reduced to a misdemeanour at the hearing due to conflicting eyewitness accounts.
The victim is also said to have sustained only minor injuries, despite police reports indicated he suffered a fractured nose.
The 24-year-old reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charge, was released without bail and ordered to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim. A drug test the judge originally ordered was also cancelled.
TMZ reports the fight began when Chris was posing for a picture with a couple of fans when two men, one of them Parker, photobombed the star. Chris allegedly told Parker, "I'm not down with that gay s**t, I'm into boxing," before punching him in the nose.
Other sources tell the website Chris was merely trying to stop the man from entering his tour bus when a fight broke out and that his bodyguard "handled" the situation.
The star's bodyguard was also charged in the incident but will now only face a misdemeanour.
Chris remains on probation from attacking ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
The Los Angeles County Probation Department has launched an investigation as to whether the latest alleged incident is a violation of his probation.
Chris could face up to four years in prison if he's found guilty of violating its terms.
