The incident occurred when Brown was in town for a party at Howard University as a part of the school's homecoming celebration. He was initially charged with a felony, but it was later downgraded to a misdemeanor.

The arrest is the latest in a string of detainments that have landed the embattled singer in the headlines.

He was arrested in March for violation of probation ordered in connection to his highly publicized assault of then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna, in 2009. Since being discharged from a rehabilitation center in Malibu, Brown has been in jail in Los Angeles, where he will remain until he is transported to D.C.
