“He [Chris Brown] is being transported to robbery homicide, where he will be arrested for assault with a deadly weapon,” Lt. Chris Ramirez, a spokesman for the LAPD, said.

Authorities also retrieved a gun and other weapons and drugs after Brown threw a duffel bag out the window of his house and yelled at the police to come and get him.

The arrest follows a prolonged police stand-off at the singer’s home Tuesday morning. Brown refused to come out of his home and posted a series of videos on his Instagram account demanding police to get a warrant and insisting they wouldn’t find anything once they did. (RELATED: Woman Claims Chris Brown Threatened Her With A Gun)
