Brown has left the house
Chris Brown and more than a dozen members of his posse were taken into police custody Tuesday after a tense, 10-hour standoff in which officers surrounded Brown's Tarzana, Calif., house. Streamed live on TMZ, the event featured several highlights, including the arrival of Brown's attorney Mark Geragos.
It all began in the wee hours Tuesday, when LAPD officers arrived at the house in response to a 911 call from a woman claiming Brown had threatened her with a gun, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Brown denied the cops access until they produced a warrant. A waiting game ensued as authorities applied for the warrant.
At one point, Brown surrendered several weapons and an unknown quantity of drugs to the police, throwing the items out a window in a duffel bag.
The woman, Baylee Curran, told TMZ she was partying with Brown when a member of his posse became irate. Curran said she was threatened at gunpoint and thrown out.
Brown lashed out at authorities in several expletive-rich Instagram vids he shot during the day. Calling the police "the worst gang in the world." Brown said he was innocent, but offered no explanation. He denounced reports that he had barricaded himself in the house or threatened police.
