Before turning him loose, the judge ordered Brown to appear in court again on November 25, and to stay 100 yards away from his accuser. While it's not yet clear why the charge was reduced, TMZ reports it may be because the injuries were minor.

Brown was arrested Sunday after punching a man outside his hotel and breaking his nose. Cops say the fight started after the man photobombed Chris and a couple of girls he was taking a picture with.
KELLY OSBOURNE REJECTS LADY GAGA’S PEACE OFFERING: KELLY OSBOURNE is not ready to make nice with LADY GAGA. The two have been feuding since 2009 after Kelly criticized Gaga for skipping the red carpet at the Grammy Awards. That comment prompted Gaga to berate Kelly on Twitter, and Kelly to call Gaga a hypocrite for not intervening to stop the online bullying by Gaga's "little Monsters" that followed.
Well, on Sunday, Gaga was a guest on Britain’s The X Factor, where Kelly’s mom SHARON OSBOURNE is a judge, and the singer brought along a birthday cake for Kelly as a peace offering. But Kelly was having none of it.
Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the would away? #JustSendItToME #LoveNotWar
— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) October 27, 2013
Gaga tried to smooth things over some more, tweeting, “I didn’t know it was your B-day until this afternoon. Meant as a peace offering. Happy Birthday,” but the birthday girl still didn’t accept it, telling Gaga to eat a four-letter item that's not cake.

THE DAY MIKE TYSON CAUGHT BRAD PITT MESSIN' WITH ROBIN GIVENS: BRAD PITT nearly got his face rearranged when boxing champion MIKE TYSON caught him with his ex-wife.
It happened after Tyson and ROBIN GIVENS split up in 1988. She rebounded with a then-unknown Brad Pitt, but she and Tyson were still messing around, too. So one day Tyson showed up at Robin's house, and Brad was already there canoodling with Robin.
Tyson writes in his new autobiography "Undisputed Truth" that Brad begged him not to beat him. "Dude, don't strike me," he claims Brad told him, adding. "You had to see the look on his face. He looked like he was ready to receive his last rites. He also looked stoned out of his gourd."
"Undisputed Truth" comes out November 12.
COULD BE TRUE, BUT PROBABLY CRAP - O.J. SIMPSON IS KHLOE'S REAL DAD: BRUCE JENNER could be getting a helping hand should his separation from wife KRIS ever turn into a divorce battle with wife KRIS, and from the most unlikely of all people too -- O.J. Simpson!
According to the rarely-reliable National Enquirer, O.J. has said he wants to help Bruce "destroy" Kris, whom he dated while she was still married to his longtime lawyer Robert Kardashian. A source tells the rag, “Simpson has hated Kris ever since she portrayed him as a brutal monster in her book. He’s vowed to get even with her someday and says helping Bruce in the divorce is a golden opportunity."
Simpson's biggest bombshell? The snitch says, “Khloe reached out to O.J., and he told her point-blank that he is her father. Kris laughed it off and told Khloe to forget about him. But now, O.J. says he’s got a letter Kris wrote back in the 1980s, and in it she admits that Khloe is his child. To O.J., it is the final proof about Khloe, and he wants Bruce to use it in the divorce case, too.”

WATCH BRITNEY BUST OUT HALLOWEEN CLIP 'IT’S BRITNEY WITCH': With Halloween days away, BRITNEY SPEARS has gotten into the spooky spirit of the day in a Halloween-themed video with a BBC radio host titled “It’s Britney, Witch.”
The clip features Brit reading the iconic VINCENT PRICE portion of MICHAEL JACKSON'S “Thriller” while breaking into a British accent with varying degrees of success.
Speaking of Britney ... UK newspaper The Sun reports shipping crews off the coast of Africa use her songs to deter Somali pirates from trying to highjack their vessels as they sail through the region.
British Merchant Navy officer Rachel Owens told the paper the pirates can't stand Western culture. “Her songs were chosen by security accompanying tankers because they thought the pirates would hate them most. As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney they move on as quickly as they can."
