Chris Brown Arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon
After a lengthy standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department, Chris Brown has been arrested and will be booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Baylee Curran accused Brown of threatening her with a gun while at his Tarzana, Calif. home. The former beauty queen, who had partied with Brown in the past, claims an argument arose after she admired some of his jewelry. The singer allegedly demanded that she “get the f*** out” and pointed a gun at her.
Officers responded to the scene around 3 a.m. on Tuesday (Aug. 30) following a 911 call from a woman requesting help. Curran filed a police report and cops obtained a search warrant.
During the investigation, Brown reportedly threw a duffel bag out his window that contained two guns and drugs, according to TMZ. After throwing the bag, Breezy yelled “come and get me,” as per multiple sources.
He is being taken to the Robbery Homicide Division of the LAPD for questioning.
Earlier in the day, Brown took to social media to deny the accusations.
“I’m sleep half the damn night,” he said in one Instagram video. “I just wake up and all these motherfuckin’ helicopter choppers is around, police out there at the gate. Come on, my ni**a. What the fuck else y’all want from me, bro? I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter, do work. I don’t even fuck ugly bitches, triflin’ bitches. Whatever the fuck it is, I’m not on that, bro…I’m innocent. Fuck everybody.”
He continued, “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 ni**as know. I’m y’all daddy, ni**a.”
Brown completed five years of felony probation in March 2015 after pleading guilty to felony assault in his case involving Rihanna.
His peers including Omarion and K. Michelle took to Twitter to share their support.
