The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

Singer Chris Brown was ar­rested on Au­gust 30 in Los An­ge­les on sus­pi­cion of as­sault with a deadly weapon, po­lice said, fol­low­ing an hours-long stand-off af­ter a woman al­leged he pointed a gun at her.

Po­lice said the trou­bled singer, who has had nu­mer­ous brushes with the law, was be­ing trans­ported to a po­lice sta­tion to be booked on the as­sault charge.

The Los An­ge­les Po­lice Depart­ment ear­lier said that of­fi­cers from homi­cide and rob­bery di­vi­sion, which deals with celebrity cases, headed to Brown’s home af­ter the woman called for help at 3:11am.

Brown, 27, took to so­cial me­dia to deny any wrong­do­ing, dar­ing po­lice to get a search war­rant to en­ter his home in a se­ries of videos posted on In­sta­gram.

“When you get the war­rant for what­ever you need to do, you’re go­ing to walk right up in here and you’re go­ing to see noth­ing, you id­iots,” said a vis­i­bly an­gry Brown.

He voiced sup­port for the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment against po­lice bru­tal­ity, say­ing, “You’re all the worst gang in the world, the po­lice.”

The R&B singer, who topped the US sin­gles chart with “Run It!” and “Kiss Kiss”, has had years of run-ins with the law.

Most no­to­ri­ously, he was con­victed of beat­ing then-girl­friend Ri­hanna be­fore the 2009 Grammy Awards, forc­ing the pop singer to miss the mu­sic in­dus­try’s an­nual gala. – AFP
