Singer Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following an alleged confrontation with a woman at his Los Angeles home, according to The Associated Press, citing Los Angeles police.
KNBC reported the arrest comes after what is being called a 10-hour standoff between Brown and officers with the Los Angeles Police Department.
KTLA reported that Brown refused to come out of his home when police arrived.
NBC News reported that the investigation involved a felony assault with a deadly weapon report early Tuesday, when police responded to a 3 a.m. 911 call from a woman.
Police said at a 1 p.m. news conference that they obtained a search warrant, which the Los Angeles Times reported police obtained to search Brown's home for a weapon the woman said was used to threaten her.
TMZ Live spoke with the woman who they said was the alleged victim, Baylee Curram, who said she has partied with the singer before. According to Curram, Brown pointed a gun when she was admiring a diamond cross necklace in the singer's home.
"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," Curram told the L.A. Times. "That’s when Chris pulled his gun and told me to get out."
Police said Brown was being taken to LAPD headquarters, where he will be arrested, according to KNBC.
