Posted Saturday April 5, 2014 12:23 AM GMT

Currently en route to his Washington DC trial, Chris Brown now apparently faces a prison sentence for his alleged assault of a man near the W Hotel in October 2013.

TMZ reportedly obtained legal documents filed by prosecutors, stating that they have taken the case to the grand jury, believing there is sufficient evidence to support felony charges.

The 25-year-old rapper has been charged with misdemeanor assault, and As previously reported, his lawyer, Mark Geragos, has also filed documents requesting the case's dismissal, claiming prosecutors misused the grand jury system.

However, the prosecution has stated that the victim's injuries required hospitalization, which could potentially justify a felony charge, if the evidence holds.
