Chris Brown released on bail following arrest in weapon probe

Chris Brown has been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Los Angeles County jail records show the singer was released late on Tuesday night after paying bail of $250,000 (£190,000).

He was arrested hours earlier after a woman called for help from a gathering at his home.

The arrest marked the conclusion of a nearly 14-hour stand-off with police.

Police said officers first responded to the 27-year-old’s Los Angeles home at around 3am local time.

The woman was not identified and police did not say what assistance she needed.

However, model Baylee Curran has claimed in the Los Angeles Times that Chris pointed a gun at her face.

Paradise singer Chris later posted messages on social media proclaiming his innocence.

It isn’t the first time the singer has been in trouble – in 2009 he was convicted of assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna.
