Chris Brown is out of jail today on $250,000 bail, NBC Los Angeles reports. L.A. police arrested the singer last night on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, following an hours-long standoff at his home, during which Brown attempted to mount a public defense via since-pulled Instagram video.

Brown’s accuser, Baylee Curran, said she was visiting the singer’s mansion with several other people and admiring some jewelry when Brown abruptly pointed a gun at her and demanded that she leave. Curran ran outside, grabbed her phone from an assistant who wanted her to sign a nondisclosure agreement, and fled the property on foot, she told the Los Angeles Times. The assistant allegedly chased Curran in a Jeep, but she hid under a neighbor’s SUV.

Brown has not yet been formally charged, the Times reports. In yesterday’s Instagram clips, Brown proclaimed his innocence and claimed he didn’t have a gun on the property. Those clips have since been deleted, replaced by a video of Ray J speaking in his friend’s defense:

Real friends!!!!! The world will see!!! TRUST ME

Lawyer Mark Geragos, known for representing Brown and other high-profile clients like Michael Jackson and Winona Ryder, tweeted about the case:

TMZ first reported the Brown story yesterday. Earlier this summer, the tabloid also broke news of Brown’s alleged assaults on former manager Mike G and former tour manager Nancy GhoshTMZ is also reporting that Brown’s latest accuser, Curran, is wanted for questioning in New York City regarding an alleged purse snatching in 2013.
