Chris Brown Streams Bizarre Rant Before Arrest For Alleged Gun Threat
Chris Brown streamed a bizarre Instagram rant Tuesday as cops swarmed his Los Angeles home following reports he allegedly threatened a woman with a gun.
The Grammy-winning singer was ultimately arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from jail on $250,000 bail, according to officials.
Around 3 a.m. Tuesday, police responded after a woman reportedly called 911 from outside Brown's Tarzana, California, house and urged the singer to speak with them.
Instead, several live, profanity-laced videos began to appear on Brown's Instagram.
"What i do care about i you'll defacing my name as a person, my character and intergrity (sic)," Brown wrote in the caption of in one of three videos. "I am a father. I am one of the best entertainers out here."
Brown addressed the police vehicles and helicopter outside his home but said he's just been "sleeping half the d*** night" and referred to a "bull**** a** story."
When police attempted to enter the home, they were reportedly told to obtain a search warrant.
By 12:30 p.m. Pacific, Brown's attorney arrived and entered the home.
The singer's entourage then filed out of the house and lined up as police checked them for weapons before questioning the guests while news choppers captured the whole thing overhead.
Baylee Curran, Miss California Regional 2016, was confirmed as the woman who called 911.
She claims she's hung out with Brown — along with Justin Bieber — before and had a pleasant time. This time, Curran said Brown became irate after she touched some jewelry and pointed a gun at her.
Curran said she soon fled the home.
