LOS ANGELES — Singer Chris Brown has posted his $250,000 bail and been released from custody less than two hours after police booked him on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Authorities arrested Brown on Tuesday after executing a search warrant on his Los Angeles home, delayed by 14 hours when Brown barricaded himself inside the residence, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Brown, 27, is scheduled to appear in municipal court Sept. 20 on the assault charge, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department site.
Officers responded to Brown’s home around 3 a.m. Tuesday after model Baylee Curan told LAPD that Brown had threatened her with a gun, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Curan told the Times that Brown got angry and pointed a gun at her face when she admired a man’s jewelry.
Brown alleges he’s innocent and his attorney says the allegations are “demonstrably false.”
Brown refused to let police into his home — located in the Tarzana neighborhood of Los Angeles — and engaged them in a 14-hourlong standoff. Throughout the day, Brown took to Instagram in videos, which have since been deleted, in which he said the allegations were false and rebutted media reports.
“I’m not coming out … it’s always going to be f— the police. Black lives matter,” Brown said in one of the videos, according to PIX affiliate KTLA. “Good luck when you get the warrant or whatever you need to do. You’re going walk right up in here, and you’re going to see nothing, you idiots.”
Brown has a history of run-ins with the law. Most notably, Brown was given probation in 2009 after admitting to attacking singer Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.
Brown was charged for hitting a man outside his tour bus in Washington in 2013 and is accused of throwing a brick at his mother’s car.
