Chris Brown Released From Jail On $250,000 Bail



Following his arrest Tuesday night (August 30), Chris Brown has been released from jail in Los Angeles County after posting $250,000 bail.

Brown was arrested after a 14-hour period in which police surrounded his L.A. home while waiting for a search warrant.

Police responded to a 911 call early Tuesday morning from a woman who said that Brown had threatened her with a firearm. The woman, actress and 2016 Miss California Regional Baylee Curran, has since spoken publicly about her alleged encounter with the singer.

Curran said that she was admiring a piece of diamond jewelry in Brown’s kitchen when the singer and his friends demanded that she leave the house. “Chris Brown kind of went off, pulled out a gun and said, ‘Get the fuck out,’” she said in an interview with E! News. “He was saying, ‘Get the fuck out! Haven’t I told you guys enough?’ And kind of threatening me with the gun, like if I didn’t get out he’s going to shoot me with it.”

Allegedly, Brown tried to get Curran to sign a nondisclosure agreement before she left the house. She said she refused to sign and instead ran from the house and hid under a truck.

Curran said that she had spent time with Brown “several times before” the alleged incident, but that he had never threatened her before.
