Chris Brown is in trouble again and it's not looking good.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, police were called to his Los Angeles home by a woman who claimed that the singer had pointed a gun at her. The lady, later named as Miss California Regional 2016 contestant Baylee Curran, fled the Tarzana residence after Brown and a friend of his turned on her when she admired a diamond necklace. In a witness statement later, she said:
“I don’t know if it was Chris’s 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. 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!’”
This is the latest addition to a growing list of legal issues that the 27-year-old has been swamped with since he was arrested for assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009. For his actions, he spent six years on probation after pleading guilty to the attack — this was lifted in March 2015, by which time he had completed about 1,000 hours of community service.
Though as news hit online sources of the singer's latest collision with the law, an aggressive media storm began brewing once again with Chris Brown refusing to step up to the allegations that he had assaulted Curran. Despite police orders, he also failed to come out of his property, resulting in a lengthy stand-off with the LAPD that went on for almost 14 hours.
During this time, the singer pleaded his innocence on social media, shoving off rumors that he had barricaded himself away in his home. He said:
"I don't care. Y'all gonna stop playing with me like I'm the villain out here, like I'm going crazy. When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing. You idiots."

"Idiots" or not though, the police did finally present a search warrant. But not before Chris could put forward his expletive-laden take on things, which blamed the law for demonizing him:
In another Instagram video, which he has also since deleted, he bizarrely (and rather creatively, I must say) employed fart imagery once more, saying:
"I don't give a f--k. I'm not running for politics. I don't give f--k if I get personal opinion; all y'all can suck a fart out my ass for all I care. What I do care about is y'all defacing my name as a person and my character and my integrity. 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. All y'all n---as know I am your daddy, n---a. 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?"
Despite all of this though, the ball has since been firmly in the the LAPD's court. After an extensive search of Brown's home, a duffel bag with a gun, some weapons and drugs was in fact found outside one of his windows. It appears to have been thrown out when the sh*t show began.
Following the findings, Brown was arrested and charged with suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. According to the Los Angeles County jail, Breezy was released from custody around 11:15 pm after posting a huge $250,000 bail. His attorney, Mark Geragos, tweeted the following:
Currently, it is unclear how the situation is about to progress. Yet for Chris's sake, let's hope the allegations are indeed "demonstrably false" because we all know that the 'Grass Ain't Greener' (to borrow Breezy's own lyrics) in prison.
What do you think about all of this?
