Chris Brown Arrested For Assault With a Deadly Weapon
After a lengthy standoff with police, Chris Brown was arrested on Tuesday (Aug. 30) on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Baylee Curran has accused the singer of threatening her with a gun while they were hanging out at his Tarzana, Calif. home. She claims an argument took place after she admired some of his jewelry, followed by him pulling pulled a gun on her and demanding that she "get the f*ck out".
L.A.P.D. officers responded to the scene around 3 a.m., after receiving a 911 call from a woman requesting help. Curran would file a police report and cops obtained a search warrant.
Brown, however, barricaded himself inside the home and refused to come out, before the arrest marked the conclusion of nearly 14-hour-long stand-off and investigation by police.
Earlier in the day, he took to social media to deny the accusations.
"I’m sleep half the damn night," Brown said in an Instagram video that has since been deleted. "I just wake up and all these motherf*ckin’ helicopter choppers is around, police out there at the gate. Come on, my n*gga. What the f*ck else y’all want from me, bro? I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter, do work. I don’t even f*ck ugly bitches, triflin’ bitches. Whatever the f*ck it is, I’m not on that, bro... I’m innocent. F*ck everybody.”
"All y’all can suck a fart out my ass for all I care. What I do care about is y’all defacing my name as a person and my character and integrity. I am a father. I am one of the best entertainers out here without bragging and trying to say ‘Woe is me, I don’t get enough credit.’ All y’all n*ggas know. I’m y’all daddy, n*gga."
Brown was eventually released from jail late Tuesday night after posting $250,000 bail.
