The singer posted $250,000 to be released from jail on Tuesday night after being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon at his Tarzana home earlier in the day.
Former beauty queen Baylee Curran told authorities that Brown threatened her with a gun after she admired jewelry in his home. Officers arrived at the residence at approximately 3 a.m. on Tuesday and stayed there until a search warrant was obtained in the afternoon.
During a lengthy standoff with police, Brown reportedly threw a duffel bag out of his home, which is said to have contained two guns and drugs. Multiple sources claim the singer yelled “come and get me” after throwing the bag.
Brown took to social media to proclaim his innocence in since-deleted videos. “I stay out of the way, take care of my daughter, do work,” he said. “I don’t even fuck ugly bitches, triflin’ bitches. Whatever the fuck it is, I’m not on that, bro…I’m innocent. Fuck everybody.”
Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos tweeted an update after Brown’s release. “Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes,” he wrote. “Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy.”
Brown is set to appear in court on Sept. 20.
Ray J, who was detained at Brown’s home during the incident, came to his defense. “I’m real upset about today,” he said in an Instagram video. “I’m not happy with how things are handled and how people can take a false story and blow it up into something way more than what it should be.
He continued, “I support the homie Chris and I support the whole movement. This shit gotta change. It can’t be like this every time somebody yipping and yapping tryna get an extra buck. It turns around and it’s all bad on us.”
