Troubled singer Chris Brown has escaped further jail time after pleading guilty to an assault charge.

Brown appeared at a court in Washington, D.C. Tuesday and admitted beating up a man outside a hotel in the city last year.

Brown, who spent two months in prison earlier this year for a probation violation, was sentenced to time already served for the misdemeanor assault charge and was fined $150. During the hearing he apologized for his actions, telling the judge, "I'm sorry, I am very sorry."

He walked free from court with his on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran by his side.

The singer's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was previously convicted on an assault charge stemming from the attack.

Brown's court appearance Tuesday marked the third time officials had attempted to resolve the case with the star. He missed a previous plea hearing scheduled for Friday due to travel difficulties.
