Celebrity privilege: Chris Brown's charge reduced to misdemeanor assault...

It pays to be a celebrity.  

Chris Brown’s assault charge has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor following an attack on Isaac Parker, 20, this past weekend.

Prior to his release, he was ordered to report to his California probation officer within 48 hours and to stay at least 100 yards away from the man. 

The maximum penalty on the reduced charge is 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. He must return to court on November 24th. (full story).

He got off lightly but will he learn from it?
