Chris Brown Arrested After Threatening A Woman With A Gun
A duffel bag containing weapons and drugs was allegedly thrown from Brown’s house.
Chris Brown has been arrested and charged by the LAPD with assault with a deadly weapon after an 11-hour-long standoff with police.
Officers responded to a call at around 3 a.m. from a woman at the residence who says Brown, 27, had pointed a gun at her. After police obtained a search warrant and did a protective sweep of the property, Brown was escorted to the police station, where he was described as cooperative.
The woman has been identified as actress and former beauty pageant contestant, Baylee Curran. In a video posted on Instagram on Tuesday afternoon, she said, “Do you all honestly think I wanted this, and I caused this? If somebody put a gun to your head, what would you do?”.
Brown also posted a series of videos on Instagram, criticising the police and the media, while proclaiming his innocence.
“When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing, you idiots. I’m innocent.”
Police have not confirmed if a weapon was found at Brown’s home, though TMZ reports a duffel bag containing weapons and drugs was thrown from the house, which has not been substantiated by police.
Brown has had multiple run-ins with the law since pleading guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He was jailed for a hit-and-run charge in 2013, pleaded guilty to punching a man in Washington and was sentenced to time served in 2014, and most recently allegedly abused his tour manager in May of this year.
