USA Today obtained copies of troubled singer Chris Brown ‘s shocking mugshots from a D.C. jail where he is incarcerated until his upcoming trial on assault charges later this month. Brown was arrested on Oct. 27, 2013, and charged with felony assault of a man outside a D.C. hotel. Brown looks depressed and haggard in his mugshot photos.
He was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. He is on psychotropic medication and receiving therapy for his multiple mental disorders. Brown was transferred in the custody of federal marshals to the Washington, D.C. jail from a California jail where he was detained for violating his 2009 probation for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.
Officials say the 24-year-old singer was placed in the general population at the jail. Celebrity prisoners receive no special treatment in the nation’s capital. Brown faces prison time if found guilty of assaulting a male fan who asked him for a pic with him.
