Following a long standoff with police at his Los Angeles home, singer Chris Brown was arrested for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Police received a call from a woman claiming that Brown threatened her with a gun during a violent rage.
The woman, Baylee Curran, went to Brown’s home with a business associate invited by the singer. She went outside for fresh air, and upon returning inside admiring a diamond necklace brought by a man showcasing jewelry to the group that had gathered at Brown’s home. Curran claims that Brown became enraged and began shouting at Curran to back away from the necklace. She ran outside with her friend, only to be followed by Brown brandishing a weapon. She tried to leave, but was forced to wait by the front gate for her phone, which was confiscated as a condition to enter the premises. When one of Brown’s associates approached her with her phone, he said he’d only give it back if she signed a non disclosure agreement. She refused, snatched the phone, ran to a neighboring property and hid under an SUV while Brown’s associates gave chase. Brown’s neighbor then called the authorities.
Brown released several videos on his Instagram page commenting on the situation.
WARNING. Extremely foul lanuage follows. Watch at your own caution.
Police were forced to wait for a search warrant to enter Brown’s home, and upon entering found multiple guns as well as a stash of drugs.
Brown was taken into custody by LAPD late Tuesday afternoon.
