Following a bizarre standoff at his home with police after a woman alleged that he pointed a gun at her, Chris Brown has been released from custody.
Police arrested Brown on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, after an hour-long standoff on Tuesday.
He was freed on $250,000 bail at 11:19 pm local time (0619 GMT Wednesday), according to Los Angeles County jail records.
“Chris is out and well,” Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos tweeted a short time later.
“The allegations against him are demonstrably false.”
The Los Angeles Police Department earlier said that officers from the homicide and robbery division, which deals with celebrity cases, headed to Brown’s palatial home after the woman called for help at 3:11 am on Tuesday.
Brown, 27, took to social media to deny wrongdoing, daring police to get a search warrant to enter his home in a series of videos posted on Instagram.
“Barricaded myself in my house,” the pop star said in the online post.
“I’m not coming out — for what?” said Brown, in a video post broadcast on US television and shared countless times online.
“When you all get the warrant or whatever you need, you’re gonna walk right up in here and see nothing, you idiots,” Brown says on Instagram.
After the lengthy standoff, police by early afternoon had obtained a search warrant and entered the singer’s home.
