Chris Brown finally appeared in a Washington, D.C., courtroom Monday afternoon after being arrested on Sunday and charged with felony assault for getting into a fight outside the W Hotel. AP reports, the charge was reduced to simple assault, a misdemeanor, and the singer was ordered released after spending the night in police lockup at the 2nd District Station. TMZ reports the reason Brown's charge was reduced is because the injuries to the victim were minor, even though the victim said Brown broke his nose. Brown has another court appearance on Nov. 25th. His attorney Danny Onarato says, the evidence will show his client did nothing unlawful
