Chris Brown Arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon: Police


ABC/Randy HolmesChris Brown has been arrested and charged for assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Brown is currently being transported to the homicide/robbery division, the LAPD said, describing him as being “cooperative.”

Police could not comment on if the weapon was found at his home.

LAPD were executing a search warrant at Chris Brown’s house after responding to a call earlier this morning, according to officials.

LAPD arrived at the musician’s Los Angeles home after receiving a call from a woman needing assistance at around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Brown denied any wrongdoing via social media, inviting police to obtain a warrant and search his home. “You’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing,” he said in the video posted to his Instagram.

The investigation was transferred to the LAPD’s Robbery Homicide division because of its high profile status.

After police received and served a search warrant, Brown and his guests were brought outside while authorities did a protective sweep.

All occupants will be interviewed about this morning’s events.

Brown’s representatives did not immediately respond to ABC News’s request for comment.
