Troubled singer Chris Brown spent the weekend in a Washington, D.C. jail cell after he was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with assaulting a man. Under D.C. law, scofflaws must sit in jail all weekend until they go before a judge on Monday.
According to a report on gossip blog TMZ.com, the incident happened around 4:30 a.m. outside a D.C. hotel where Brown was staying. Two women approached the singer and asked for a photo. While taking the photo with the women, a man photobombed the picture. A fight ensued and Brown allegedly punched the man in the face — breaking his nose.
That’s the victim’s story. Brown’s camp is telling a different story. They say the victim tried to enter the star’s chartered bus. Both Brown and his bodyguard were arrested.

Social networking giant Facebook has announced a new change in its policy that will allow advertisers to use your name, original content, Personal data and your photos in their online advertisements without your permission and without compensation to you.
The announcement comes on the heels of a legal settlement earlier this week that saw Facebook pay out over $20 million to Facebook members whose names and images were used in ads without their permission. Under the terms of the settlement each user will receive $15 in compensation.
Prior to the new change, Facebook members were allowed to choose privacy settings that blocked the use of their name and images in advertising on the social network. Those privacy settings have now been removed.
Facebook has reworded the policy to inform users that your face and name CAN be used in advertisements going forward — without your permission.
A woman and her boyfriend were trapped on the Wonder Wheel ride at Coney Island for 30 minutes yesterday while Beyonce applied her makeup. The Coney Island Operator, who is clearly a Beyonce Stan, forgot the couple was on the amusement park ride in Coney Island, NY, where Beyonce was filming a music video. The woman screamed and cried but no one heard her as fans and video extras — and the Wonder Wheel operator — clamored for Beyonce’s attention.

Former high school teacher sentenced to 30 days in jail for having sex with 14-year-old girl who looked “older than her chronological age”
The winds of change are swirling in America. Before President Obama was elected in 2008, men who had sex with underage girls were given lengthy jail sentences. But the president’s gay agenda has ushered in a new era of social tolerance that no sane American could have ever imagined.
A former high school teacher was sentenced to just 30 days in jail for repeated sexual contact with a 14-year-old student who later killed herself.
Yellowstone County district Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced former high school teacher Stacey Dean Rambold to 15 years in prison, with all but 31 days suspended, because the girl looked older than her chronological age.
Embattled singer Chris Brown took to his Twitter account today to respond to the LA city attorney charging him with hit-and-run.
The 24-year-old singer’s name has been a mainstay in the headlines over the last few years, but it looks it he may not be in the wrong this time.
If you recall, Brown and his longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran were involved in a fender bender back in May. Brown’s SUV tapped the bumper of another woman’s vehicle. He got out, exchanged information with the woman, took a few photos of the minimal damage, then left the scene.
Now Brown is accusing gossip website TMZ of “yellow journalism” for bullying him and reporting the new charges.
“My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!,” Brown wrote.

A 60-year-old grandmother was killed by an overloaded shopping cart in Shanghai, China. The accident happened at the Lianhua supermarket on Friday morning.
CCTV footage captured the woman pushing her own cart down a flat escalator in the store. The woman apparently heard a sound that made her turn around seconds before the runaway cart sped down the escalator and crashed into her, throwing her violently against a concrete pillar.
Seconds later, 2 men are seen sprinting down the escalator to help the woman. But she died from massive internal bleeding.
