Chris Brown released from jail on $250,000 bail



[UPDATE 2:19 p.m.]

Chris Brown is a free man.

The singer was released on bail Tuesday night after posting $250,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County jail records.

"Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes," Brown's attorney tweeted out.

Singer Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the LAPD.

Police Lt. Chris Ramirez says Brown was arrested Tuesday and was being taken to downtown Los Angeles for booking.

Woman says Chris Brown pointed gun at her and said, 'I'm sick of you girls' 

[UPDATE: 7:33 p.m.]

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department obtained a search warrant and entered singer Chris Brown's home around 1 p.m., according to the LA Times. 

About half a dozen people exited the home and were patted down by officers. 

So far, no arrests have been made. 

The woman who called 911, Baylee Curran, told the LA Times that she and a friend had gone to the singer's home with a business associate. 

While they were there, Curran said she went to the backyard to get some air. When she went back inside the home, Curran said she was admiring a diamond cross necklace a man was showcasing inside the home. 

That's when she said her confrontation with Brown began. 

"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," Curran told the LA Times. "That's when Chris pulled his gun and told me to 'Get out.' He said 'I'm sick of you girls, get the F out!'"

Curran said she ran outside after Brown pointed the gun at her face, but had to wait for her phone by the front gate. She initially had to hand over her phone upon entering Brown's house. 

Curran added that when the man retrieved her phone, he said he would only give it back if she signed a non-disclosure form, according to the LA Times. 

She said that's when she grabbed her phone and called police.

Singer Chris Brown became the subject of a criminal assault investigation Tuesday after a woman called 911 outside his Tarzana, California, home around 3 a.m. requesting help, according to E! News. 

The alleged victim, who has not been identified, told authorities Brown pointed a gun at her, NBC News reported. The woman said she then left his home and called the police.

When police attempted to enter and search the home, they were told to get a warrant, according to the Los Angeles Times. 

Meanwhile, Brown took to Instagram to say that he is being unfairly portrayed as a villain. 

"So I'm asleep half the damn night, and I just wake up all these motherf--king helicopters choppers is around police out there out the gate. C'mon my n---a what the f--k else do you want from me," he said in the Instagram rant. 

"I stay out of the way taking care of my daughter. Do work. I don't f--k with ugly bitches, trifling bitches whatever the f--k it is. I'm not on that, bro. I'm way too tired to be dealing with this bulls--t."

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to NBC Los Angeles that the investigation is being conducted by the department's robbery-homicide division, which typically handles high-profile cases involving celebrities. 

"Right now, we still have to determine what actually occurred," Lt. Chris Ramirez told NBC Los Angeles. 

This isn't the first time Brown has had a run-in with the law. Brown was the subject of a domestic abuse case involving Rihanna back in 2009. He served five years of felony probation last year after pleading guilty in that case.
