Which celebrity arrests in 2013 were the most scandalous? As the year unfolded, the inevitable happened: The rich and famous started getting locked up. Think of this list as a timeline, because it details who did what to whom. Details will be added as they become available, including exactly what the celeb did to get hauled in by the police. Who will get taken into custody next?

Celebrities sometimes do bad things, but unlike most of us, they typically don't get punished in the same way. Most of the time these (temporary) jail birds wind up paying a nominal fine and they walk. Occasionally, though, a famous person might step so far out of line that they will indeed face jail time or, at the very least, be sentenced to some community service. They might also get a probation officer, who'll tear his/her hair out trying to keep track of all the things the celeb may (or may not) be up to.

Chris Brown was arrested and charged with felony assault early on the morning of October 27, 2013, after an altercation outside the W hotel in downtown Washington D.C. The arrest could very well land Brown back in jail, because he's still on probation stemming from his 2009 arrest for assaulting his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

According to TMZ, Chris Brown punched a man in the face and allegedly broke his nose. He also supposedly uttered a gay slur before throwing a punch. Brown's bodyguard was also taken into custody in connection with the incident. The felony charge was later downgraded to a misdemeanor.

On October 30, 2013, news broke that Brown had checked into a rehab facility. A rep for the singer issued a statement, saying:

His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.
