(Los Angeles Times) – Chris Brown pleaded guilty Tuesday to an assault charge stemming from a fight that broke out last October outside the W hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., prosecutors said.

As part of the deal, the singer, 25, entered a guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge of simple assault in the nation’s capital and will face no additional jail time in Washington, prosecutors said.

The U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Columbia said prosecutors took into account that Brown had taken responsibility for his actions and had already served about 80 days in jail in Los Angeles for a probation violation.

Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, 36, got into an altercation with 20-year-old Parker Adams last October outside Brown’s tour bus.
