Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown was arrested Tuesday after a woman claimed he threatened her with a gun.
The crooner was taken into police custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after Beauty queen Baylee Curran told the police he threatened her with a gun.
She was reported to have called 911 today, in Los Angeles saying Brown had threatened her with a gun following an argument, TMZ reports.
It was reported that Chris and Miss Curran were in a home when she claims they argued and he pulled the gun. According to reports, the said incident is under investigation and Chris Brown is the sole suspect.
She told the LA Times Brown had pointed the gun at her face after she had been admiring his friend’s jewellery. Ms Curran told the LA Times that she and a friend had gone to Brown’s house with a business associate on Monday, August 29, 2016.
She said she had been admiring the diamond necklace of a man who got angry and told her to back away. That is when she says Brown pulled out a gun, pointed it at her face and told her to get out.
The ‘Loyal‘ singer was reported to have come out of his home after a stand-off with police on Tuesday.
Brown was later booked and then released on $250,000 bail, according to officials.
His lawyer tweeted that his client was later freed, adding that the accusations were “demonstrably false”. However, it is not clear if Brown was charged or released on bail.
During the stand-off, the father of one posted videos online accusing the police of harassment.
“When you get the warrant for whatever you need to do, you’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing, you idiots,” he said in one Instagram video.
