Brown was arrested over the weekend and charged with felony assault, following an incident at a nightclub in Washington D.C., where the singer, 24, was involved in an altercation, authorities previously confirmed to the Associated Press.

On Monday, Brown was released from custody, and the felony assault charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.
