Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after beauty queen Baylee Curran told police he had threatened her with a gun.
Baylee Curran told the LA Times Chris Brown had pointed the gun at her face after she had been admiring his friend’s jewellery.
Chris Brown came out of his home after a stand-off with police on August 30.
The singer’s lawyer tweeted that his client was later freed, adding that the accusations were “demonstrably false”.
Associated Press reported that Chris Brown was released on $250,000 bail.
He has several convictions for violence, including a 2009 assault on his then girlfriend, pop star Rihanna.
Police went to Chris Brown’s home following the emergency call early on August 30 from Baylee Curran, who by that time had left the property.
She told the LA Times that she and a friend had gone to Chris Brown’s house with a business associate on August 29.
Baylee Curran said she had been admiring the diamond necklace of a man who had been showing off his jewellery when the man got angry and told her to back away.
That is when she says Chris Brown pulled out a gun, pointed it at her face and told her to get out.
“If somebody put a gun to your head, what would you do? Call the police,” Baylee Curran said on her Instagram account, AFP news agency reported.
Once at Chris Brown’s sprawling mansion, police officers were allegedly denied entry and had to wait for a judge to approve a search warrant before going inside to search for a weapon.
It wasn’t until Chris Brown’s lawyer arrived that the singer eventually emerged.
Police said about half a dozen people had been escorted out of the residence and would be interviewed.
During the stand-off, Chris Brown 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,” the singer said in one Instagram video, posted to 30 million followers.
In another video, Chris Brown also voiced support for the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality, saying: “You’re all the worst gang in the world, the police.”
