(CNN) -- Singer Chris Brown pleaded guilty to simple assault Tuesday in a Washington courtroom as part of a plea deal stemming from a confrontation at a local bar in October.
The judge released Brown for time served and fined him $150.
"I'm sorry, I am very sorry," Brown told the judge in the brief court hearing.
The entertainer has other legal troubles involving separate incidents in California.
