Chris Brown has been released from prison.
But his latest legal ordeal is only just beginning.
As previously reported, Chris Brown was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday night.
He has been charged with a felony.
We’ll get to the details of the case against him in a moment, but the most immediate update on this controversial artist is that he’s been released on $250,000 bail.
It was posted at 11:19 p.m. on Tuesday, according to Los Angeles Sheriff Department inmate records, with Brown’s attorney Tweeting to fans around 2 a.m.
“Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes,” Mark Geragos wrote, adding:
“Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy.”
We’re not sure if a lawyer should really be hashtagging “TeamBreezy” if he wants to be taken seriously, but then again..
… we’re not sure about a whole lot when it comes to Chris Brown.
The 27-year-old artist was taken into custody last night after a nearly 14-hour standoff at his Tarzana, California home.
It started after a woman named Baylee Curran claimed she and a friend stopped by Brown’s house just to hang out.
In subsequent interviews, Curran says Brown was acting strange all night, culminating in him pulling a gun on her after she took a close look at an expensive piece of jewelry that was being held by a member of Brown’s entourage.
Speaking to Extra (below), Curran describes the events as follows:
“Chris came in, pulled out his gun and said, ‘I’m getting so sick of you people,’ pointed the gun at me, (and told me) to get the f—- out of the house.”
She has since told several media outlets that she feared for her life, adding to E! News of the diamond piece in question:
“I did not pick it up, I did not touch it, take it or grab it, anything to that sort.”
Curran fled from the premises and called the cops.
They arrived around 3 a.m., but Brown refused to let them inside his house.
While they were in his driveway, the singer unleashed a tirade of profanity on Instagram, filming three separate videos that cursed off the police and proclaimed his innocence.
“You’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing,” he said in one message after verbally attacking the cops for making him out to be a villain.
He then said he was “asleep half the damn night” and that “it’s always gon’ be f-ck the police.”
Soon after sharing the above footage, Brown reportedly taunted the authorities outside his Los Angeles mansion.
“Come and get me,” sources say he yelled to them upon dropping a duffel bag full of weapons and drugs out the window.
Eventually, of course, the cops obtained a search warrant and they DID go and get Brown.
A little after 5 p.m. PST, they took the singer into custody.
We don’t know at the moment exactly what evidence they found at the scene, but one has to assume they came across at least one gun.
Earlier in the night, Brown had entertained such guests as Ray J.
An initial report claimed the former Kim Kardashian sex tape partner was actually getting a tattoo inside of Brown’s home before the chaos ensued and he got the heck out of there.
According to TMZ, Ray J was actually handcuffed by police and had his BMW confiscated while they tried to figure out what the heck was going on.
After Brown’s arrest, Ray J came to his friend’s defense with the following video:
That’s all we know at the moment
Is Baylee Curran a reliable witness? We can’t say for certain.
She’s a recent beauty pageant winner and an aspiring model.
She allegedly stole a Louis Vuitton purse from The Plaza Hotel in New York City in 2013, although no charges were brought up against her at the time.
More details will likely come out in the near future about Curran, about this weird night in question and about Chris Brown’s role in it.
But if you’re asking us whether we give Brown the benefit of any doubt or if he’s earned out trust in any way, shape or form, then we can only respond with a question of our own:
Are you insane?
This guy is a violent agitator who thinks he’s above the law.
