Singer Chris Brown was arrested early Sunday in Washington and charged with felony assault, the Metropolitan Police Department has confirmed to CBS News. The R&B star is still on probation from his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna. If Sunday's arrest is determined to be a violation of his probation, the star could land in prison for up to four years.

D.C. police spokesman Paul Metcalf said the 24-year-old Brown got into a physical altercation with an adult male near the W Hotel located on K and 15th street around 4:25 a.m. local time. The name of the alleged victim was not released but Metcalf said the man had been released from the hospital as of Sunday afternoon.

Chris Hollosy, a 35-year-old male who was with Brown, was also arrested in the incident and faces the same charge. Both men would be held until Monday, police said.
