Brown, 19, posted a $50,000 bond and was released by police at 8:35 p.m. (11:35 p.m. ET). A March 5 court date has been set.
Brown, nominated for two Grammy Awards, was scheduled to perform at the show.
His girlfriend, singer Rihanna, abruptly canceled her planned Grammys performance, but neither her spokesman nor the show organizers gave a reason.
"Rihanna is well," her spokesman said in a written statement. "Thank you for concern and support."Police have not identified the alleged victim, who they said "suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker."
