The assault charge against Chris Brown, filed after his arrest early Sunday morning, has just been reduced from a felony offense to a misdemeanor.

Chris has been released from jail, where he had been for about 36 hours, with no bail. He is required to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim.

Brown will not be required to take a drug test, as often stipulated in such cases. His bodyguard’s charge was also reduced to a misdemeanor.

The controversial 24-year-old was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel and breaking his nose.

Brown had been in custody since, though it’s unclear who threw the first punch, and the reduced charge certainly indicates some of that uncertainty.

Law enforcement sources have indicated that the fight started when the man and his friend photobombed Chris, who was posing for a picture with two girls.

The victim says the same in his official statement, claiming he was trying to get a picture with Chris when Brown allegedly said, “I ain’t down wit that gay s–t.”

The victim says he responded by saying to Chris, “Why you hoing?”

Chris then said, “I feel like boxing” and hit him in the face. Then, he says, he went to square off with Chris when the bodyguard also hit him in the face.

According to the victim, who suffered a broken nose, after the bodyguard punched him, the R&B star got behind the bodyguard, screaming, “Yeah, walk away.”

Sources close to Chris insist it wasn’t over a photo, though, and that the guy tried to get on Chris’ tour bus, and Chris was just trying to stop a trespass.

In his witness statement, Chris DENIES punching the victim and says he was on the bus when the victim tried getting on and his bodyguard “handled it.”

Brown, who recently broke up with Karrueche Tran, faces certain jail time if found to be in violation of his probation for beating Rihanna back in 2009.

He could theoretically have his probation revoked without a conviction, but the more likely scenario is that probation officials will see how this plays out.

An artist’s rendition of what Barbie would look like without makeup is going viral online, and for good reason. The classic all-American girl doll looks natural!

Well, mostly. Ridiculous body proportions aside.

Take a look at Barbie with no make up below …

Barbie With No Makeup

While Barbie’s face is still freakishly out of proportion with your average young woman’s, she does look a bit more human without the blue eye shadow.

Take away that, the lipstick, the penciled-in eyebrows and the fake eyelashes and what do you have? A doll that looks a lot more like the girl next door, for sure.

This isn’t the first time someone has conceptualized a “normal Barbie.” Earlier this year, an artist illustrated what she’d look like with average measurements.

Barbie’s shorter, curvier look earned raves from Demi Lovato and others. Will the no makeup version making the rounds this week draw similar praise?

And would you be more inclined to buy this or the original model? Share your comments on the latest re-imagined, more natural Barbie doll below.
