The Pop singer had been picked up along with his bodyguard on Sunday, by the Washington Metropolitan Police. The pair were involved in an altercation with another man outside the hotel which led to the man’s injuries and the police taking them both into custody.
The star’s assault charge however has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor and has also been asked to stay 100 yards away from the victim.
Chris had been facing a potential 4-year jail time if found guilty as he would have been in violation of the five-year probation term he entered into in 2009, as a result of his assault of former girlfriend and international superstar Rihanna.
