Brown thanks fans for support

Chris Brown reached out to his fans on Twitter hours after his release from a Washington, D.C. jail.

Chris Brown has thanked fans for their support in the wake of his jail release.

The 24-year-old singer was taken into police custody after allegedly assaulting a 20-year-old man in Washington, D.C. Sunday.

Chris pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanour assault charge Monday, according to TMZ, and just hours later logged onto Twitter to reach out to fans.

“I love you TEAM BREEZY,” he wrote.

Fans responded with words of support.

“@chrisbrown you still walked out of there still waving to the fans. We love you so much,” one follower wrote. “@chrisbrown we always here Chris. We love you too man,” another added.

Chris isn’t off the hook yet, however.

While his charge was reduced from a felony, he has reportedly been ordered to stay 100 yards away from alleged victim Isaac Parker while the investigation continues into their altercation.

According to TMZ, a fight broke out when Parker attempted to pose for a photo with the star, who allegedly told him: “I’m not down with that gay s**t, I’m into boxing,” before punching him in the nose.

Other sources tell the website the singer’s bodyguard threw the blow.

Chris also remains on probation for his 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The singer could face up to four years in prison if an investigation conducted by the Los Angeles County Probation Department determines he violated the terms of his probation.

Chris’ lawyer, Danny Onorato, protested his client’s innocence outside of court on Monday.

“We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and Mr. Brown’s property as he was authorised to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing,” he said.
