Troubled singer Chris Brown pled guilty on Tuesday to charges of misdemeanor assault stemming from an altercation last October, the Associated Press reports. He was sentenced to time served following two days spent in a District of Columbia jail for the case.

Brown was arrested in October for punching a man in the face outside a Washington D.C. hotel after the man attempted to get into a picture that Brown was taking with two women. Brown had previously pled not guilty in the incident.

The most revealing red carpet looks ever

At the time of the attack, the singer was on probation for his highly publicized assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards, and was sentenced to four months in jail for violating his parole in May. 

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

Brown added, "I would like to say to the court that I'm sorry."

Brown's sixth studio album, X, is scheduled to be released on Sept.16.
