Chris Brown, the celebrity rapper / singer, is looking at a whole new list of criminal charges after a woman called cops early this morning claiming he had threatened her with a gun. The LA Times has some of the details:
A bizarre standoff Tuesday between authorities and singer Chris Brown promised to be a “long and protracted” affair, according to an LAPD official, who said investigators had obtained a search warrant for the performer’s Tarzana home.
Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Bob Green said officers were waiting for Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos. Investigators intend to search the property for a weapon that Brown is accused of using to threaten a woman early Tuesday morning.
Officers had responded to a woman’s call for help at the residence in the 5000 block of Corbin Avenue about 3 a.m. Tuesday, said LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado.
The woman said Brown, who has had several previous run-ins with the law, pointed a gun at her during a violent rage before she ran outside to call police, according to police sources who were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.
Cops showed up but Brown refused to let them in the house, telling them to get a warrant. Cops are doing just that and trying to reach a peaceful conclusion, but Brown isn’t helping himself by taunting the cops both in person and online, and defiantly throwing a duffel bag out of a window. He wrote in an online post “f*** the police” and is telling cops on the scene to “Come and get me!” Someone really ought to tell him it’s “Molon Labe”, not “Come and Get Me”.
Police have already recovered drugs, a firearm and other weapons from the scene, according to TMZ.
