Chris Brown pleaded guilty Tuesday to misdemeanor assault, stemming from an October altercation with a man outside a Washington D.C. club.

U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced Tuesday that Brown was sentenced to time served after spending two days in jail for the assault. He also has to pay $150 in court costs, according to E! News.

I'm sure he's learned his lesson and this was just a one-time thing ... you know, outside of that time he beat up Rihanna and got in trouble. After all, his attorney says he's a "wonderful" guy, and lawyers don't exaggerate.

Brown and his bodyguard were accused of breaking the victim's nose shortly after the man tried squeezing into a photo of Brown and some female fans.

That's right. Real men just don't go violating another man's selfie.

Brown appeared in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, where Machen said, "As Chris Brown himself has now finally acknowledged, he punched a man in the face without provocation in the District of Columbia. No matter your status or celebrity, you will be held accountable for such conduct in our city."

Yes. Washington, D.C., is where people are held accountable.

Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was convicted of simple assault earlier this year and is awaiting sentencing.

Brown's attorney, Danny Onorato, said after the hearing that Brown is "pleased with the outcome."

"We think it's fair," he said. "It helps him get on with his life. As you know, Mr. Brown is a recording artist. He has a new album coming out, and he wants to focus on his career, doing well and completing his probation in California.

"I think Mr. Brown has learned that you want to be more judicious about your actions," he added. "He's an incredibly talented, charismatic kid and I think he's someone you would like if you got a chance to sit down and talk to him. I think he's misperceived a lot, and he's just a wonderful person, and I'm glad this is behind him and he's able to move on."

Of course.
