Chris Brown says it’s a set-up

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

An at­tor­ney for Chris Brown said over the week­end that a woman who has ac­cused the R&B singer of point­ing a gun at her was clearly bent on set­ting him up and that po­lice found no weapons at the singer’s home.

Lawyer Mark Ger­a­gos told re­porters that 25-year-old Baylee Cur­ran be­came “irate” and called po­lice early on Au­gust 30 af­ter she was asked to leave the singer’s Los An­ge­les home “be­cause she was act­ing in an er­ratic man­ner”.

“I know that some peo­ple find it hard to be­lieve that peo­ple in this day and age may lie for cer­tain ul­te­rior mo­tives,” Ger­a­gos said. “But it is in­ter­est­ing to me that when some­body has an in­ci­dent that sup­pos­edly you are fright­ened to death and you’re scared, that the first place you go is to the [gos­sip web­site] TMZ, as op­posed to the hos­pi­tal, your psy­chi­a­trist or maybe even your lawyer.”

Cur­ran claimed that the “Kiss Kiss” singer be­came an­gry and pointed a gun at her af­ter she ad­mired a di­a­mond neck­lace worn by another man at­tend­ing a party at the singer’s house.

Brown was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of as­sault with a deadly weapon fol­low­ing a day-long stand-off with po­lice at his pala­tial es­tate. He was re­leased late on Au­gust 30 night af­ter post­ing US$250,000 bail.

Ger­a­gos in­sisted that no guns or drugs were found in the singer’s home af­ter a search by po­lice, nor was any jew­ellery match­ing the de­scrip­tion of the bauble Cur­ran claimed she was ad­mir­ing when or­dered out of the house.

“She de­scribed with great de­tail what this piece of jew­elry was,” he said. “Noth­ing was found that cor­rob­o­rated her state­ment.”

He added that none of the other six peo­ple present at the house had cor­rob­o­rated Cur­ran’s ac­count. –
