After a day-long standoff with police on Tuesday that led to his arrest, Chris Brown was released from Los Angeles County jail on $250,000 bail late Tuesday night, according to a report by the Associated Press. The singer’s latest run-in with law officials comes after he was charged with suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, after a woman who was a guest in his home, claimed he pointed a gun at her and threatened her.
The 14-hour standoff began around 3 a.m. Tuesday when numerous police were summoned to Brown’s property on a disturbance. A woman, who later identified herself as Baylee Curran, called 911 after she alleged Brown and one of his associates became irate with her during a dispute over expensive jewelry. The action created a day-long event which led to the standoff between those in the house and law-enforcement officials. Police were allowed to enter the residence around 1 p.m. with Brown’s lawyer Mark Gregarios present. Later, Brown and several others were taken from the home while reports indicate a weapon and drugs were found.
The singer hasn’t commented since being released, but his lawyer spoke on Twitter early Wednesday morning. “Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes,” he wrote. “Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false.”
