Surreal standoff ends with Chris Brown under arrest, but the R&B singer says he’s the victim – Los Angeles Times

Chris Brown and the Los Angeles Police Department spent much of Tuesday locked in a surreal standoff at the R&B performer’s Tarzana home over allegations that he threatened a woman with a gun.

The woman alleged Brown pointed the gun at her and she fled in fear, then balked at signing a nondisclosure agreement before escaping from the singer’s property. 

For hours, LAPD officers — along with an army of reporters — stood outside the house as Brown refused to let them in. During the impasse, the 27-year-old took to social media and posted a series of videos in which he railed against the police and said he was being unfairly demonized.

This latest peculiar chapter in L.A.’s annals of celebrity justice ended late afternoon when Brown was taken into custody by police, who said he would be arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
