LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police say they’ve arrested singer Chris Brown on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Police Lt. Chris Ramirez says Brown was arrested Tuesday and was being taken to downtown Los Angeles for booking.

The arrest came after a lengthy search of Brown’s home.

Brown says in video posts on Instagram that he’s innocent and rebutted reports that he had barricaded himself in his home.

Baylee Curran told the Los Angeles Times that Brown pointed a gun at her face in his home early Tuesday. She says another man at his home and Brown became angry with her when she admired the man’s diamond necklace.

Curran hasn’t responded to requests for comment from The Associated Press.
