Chris Brown Arrested On Suspicion of Assault With a Deadly Weapon After Police Serve Warrant
By Jennifer Drysdale
Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following a police standoff at his Los Angeles home on Tuesday.
In a press conference on Tuesday evening, Lt. Ramirez of the LAPD said that the Robbery Homicide Division served their search warrant and searched Brown's residence. LAPD Officer Tony Im later told ET that Brown was being interviewed at the Robbery Homicide Division, and will then be processed at the Metropolitan Detention Center.
Im told ET that Brown was being cooperative and could post bail by Tuesday night.
Police responded to a 911 call for help outside a residence at the 5000 block of Corbin Avenue at 3:12 a.m. on Tuesday, where a woman alleged that Brown had threatened her with a gun.
Brown, who claims he was asleep while the alleged incident happened, took to Instagram to reject the woman's claims and deny any wrongdoing in a series of videos.
"So, I'm sleep half the damn night, I just wake up, all these mother**king helicopter choppers are around," he says in the first video. "The police out there, at the gate. Come on, what the f**k else do y'all want from me, bro? I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter. Do work."
"I'm way too tired to be dealing with this bulls**t," he continues. "Every three months y'all come up with something, bro. What is it? What's gonna be next? … I'm innocent, f**k everybody. I'm tired of hearing this s**t."
Ray J, who left Brown's residence earlier on Tuesday, was stopped and handcuffed by police on his way out. The "Sexy Can I" singer was allowed to leave by police after they checked his ID, but his BMW was seized as evidence.
Ray J later took to Instagram to share his support for Brown.
"Thingz gotta change man! This ain't kool!" he captioned the post. "Much support to @chrisbrownofficial and the whole team! #StayPositive #DontLetTheDevilWin."
"I'm real upset about today. I'm upset at how people can take a false story and blow it up into way more than what it should be. You got just positive people around and you look outside and it's like a war zone for no reason, for what some stranger said about something that don't got nothin' to do with nothin,'" he says in the video. "It's just not right. It shouldn't be like this. I support the homie, Chris, and I support the whole movement."
