Looks like Chris Brown may be a free man next week. TMZ reports that his pending DC assault case, the reason he's currently being held, is likely to be dropped.

Chris' lawyer is said to have reached an agreement with the alleged victim and offered him a ton of money. Mark Geragos, Chris' Lawyer, believes that the deal should be sealed within the next day or two, meaning the criminal assault case will be thrown out.

However, Chris will still have to later face the judge from the Rihanna case. The judge is likely to set Chris free but if convicted, Breezy faces up to 4 years in jail.
