UPDATE: Chris Brown has entered rehab! His rep said in a statement, “Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility. His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.”

Over the weekend, Chris Brown allegedly punched a dude and everyone around the world basically went “THIS. This right here. Stuff like this is the reason why everyone thinks your bonkers insane.” Well, Chris’ assault charge has been reduced to a misdemeanor, which means he’s now free to go despite the fact that, let’s face it, he probably learned absolutely nothing from this.

The charges were reduced Monday afternoon to simple assault. Brown, 24, and Christopher Hollosy, who had spent the previous 36 hours in jail, were freed without bail. “Christopher Brown committed no crime,” his attorney Danny Onorato told reporters after the hearing, according to CNN. “We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and his property, as he is authorized to do under D.C. law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing.”

Of course he will. He’s a celebrity. You’d literally have to go on TV, state your full name and social security number, and shoot Bambi right in the face before anyone would even consider doing something. And even then, they’d probably let you off the hook if you did anything even remotely fame-worthy in the past year. “You were an extra on Scandal? Free to go, Mr. Axe-Murderer!”
