After a massive standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department, Chris Brown has been arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

We've learned that the famous rapper is being taken to the Robbery Homicide Division of the LAPD.

Earlier today, he was seen emerging from his Tarzana home and talking to local authorities about the events that took place late last night.

Baylee Curran, a former beauty queen, alleged that Brown threatened her with a gun while she was spending time with her friends at the rapper's home. The 24-year-old spoke to E! News earlier today and explained her side of the story.

Curran was inside of Brown's kitchen when she was looking at several pieces of jewelry that were on display alongside a jeweler who was also present at the time.

According to Curran, it was then that one of Brown's pals confronted her by saying, "Get out, don't touch the jewelry."

Curran adds, "[The friend] was calling me names and that's when Chris Brown kind of went off, pulled out a gun and said, ‘Get the f--k out.'"

"He was saying, ‘Get the f--k out! Haven't I told you guys enough?' And kind of threatening me with the gun like if I didn't get out he's going to shoot me with it."

Shortly after cops were first called to his Tarzana mansion, Brown took to Instagram to express his growing frustration with the police.

"I am father. I am one of the best entertainers out here without bragging and saying woe is me I don't' get enough credit…So at the end of the day I'm tired of this s--t, I'm up at 6,7 something in the morning talking this s--t for something I didn't do. How would you feel? F--k this fame s--t."
