Chris Brown is in some hot water.
E! News reported earlier today that the 27-year-old was the subject of a felony assault investigation with a deadly weapon after a woman called 911 claiming the singer threatened her with a gun. The victim, later identified by TMZ as Miss California Regional 2016 Baylee Curran, claimed Brown pointed a gun at her and threatened her. Lieutenant Chris Ramirez said the initial call came at 3 a.m. from the victim outside of the house. A law enforcement source told E! News that Curran came to the West Valley police station early Tuesday morning.
On Tuesday evening, however, police confirmed that the R&B singer was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. He was being taken to the Robbery Homicide Division of the LAPD.
A law enforcement source told E! News that the drama first began with a small party at Chris' house Monday night. According to the source, neighbors made several calls to the police station around 3 a.m. that they heard a woman screaming "Help!" down the street and around the block. The source said a number of calls were made from people inside the house and neighbors.
According to Nia Guzman's attorney Carl Anthony Moore, Brown's 2-year-old daughter Royalty was with her father when the incident occurred. He told E! News that at some point Tuesday morning, Royalty was taken to school, but once the news broke, Guzman picked her up. However, Brown's attorney Mark Geragos told E! News, "That is categorically untrue. [Royalty] wasn't and isn't here."
