Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, after allegedly pointing a gun at someone inside his California home, according to reports.
The incident developed following a 911 call from a woman who alleged that Chris had pointed a gun at her, and his arrest took place four hours later, when he emerged from his home and was met with a police presence on Tuesday (30 August).
Details surrounding the alleged arrest remain unclear, and a tweet from Chris’s lawyer claims that the allegations are “demonstrably false”:
Speaking to the LA Times, Baylee Curran, who sparked the call to the emergency services, explained the alleged turn of events, stating that it began when she admired some jewellery.
“I don’t know if it was Chris’ friend or how he was related, but that’s when he told me to back away from the diamond necklace and started cussing me out and calling me names,” she said. “That’s when Chris pulled his gun and told me to ‘Get out.’
She claims that she then fled the home, before waiting for someone to return her phone, however they then asked that she sign a nondisclosure agreement on what happened in the house.
Baylee then ran to a neighbouring house, the LA Times reports.
When detectives did enter the house, over six people emerged and an LAPD spokesman Lt. Chris Ramirez told the paper: “We’re getting the cooperation of everyone that came out.”
