The arrest follows accusations he pointed a gun at a woman.

Brown was arrested Tuesday after a woman claimed he threatened her with a gun, police said.

Earlier, officers obtained a search warrant allowing them to enter the entertainer’s Los Angeles mansion.

“Mr. Brown is going to be transported where he will be arrested for ADW — assault with a deadly weapon,” LAPD Lt. Chris Ramirez told reporters at around 5 p.m. local time (8 p.m. ET).


Brown was later booked and then released on $250,000 bail, according to officials.

The woman reported the early morning incident to police, saying 27-year-old Brown pointed the gun at her before she left his gated estate in the wealthy Los Angeles enclave of Tarzana, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
