Los Angeles police arrest singer Chris Brown for assault after lengthy standoff
Singer and performer Chris Brown was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, WWBT-TV reported.
According to Los Angeles’ Fox 11 News, the singer was arrested after a woman accused him of pulling a gun on her during a late night dispute.
Former Miss California regional finalist Baylee Curran told TMZ.com that she was attending a gathering at Brown’s home on Monday night when she got into a dispute with a member of Brown’s entourage about a piece of jewelry.
Brown, she said, pulled a gun on her and ordered her to “get the f*ck out.” She attempted to leave, briefly tangling with Brown’s handlers who demanded her cell phone and that she sign a nondisclosure agreement. She said she refused and bolted out the door, then called police.
According to TMZ.com, Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos arrived on the scene around noon local time.
TMZ also said at some point someone threw a duffel bag — containing a gun, several other weapons and an unknown quantity of drugs — out of one of the house’s windows as Brown taunted police, shouting, “Come and get me!”
