Pop star Chris Brown ended up in a standoff with police today after a pre-dawn call from a woman who claimed he had pointed a gun at her, according to a Reuters report.
Brown posted to Instagram during the standoff to deny the charge. He said he had awakened to find police outside his property and that they would need a warrant before he would let them enter, Reuters reported.
Brown has been in trouble over violence before. He assaulted then-girlfriend Rhianna in 2009 and only finished serving probation for it in 2015, according to Reuters. And in November he drew scrutiny after one of his security guards allegedly assaulted a 28-year-old insurance agent.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that it went to Brown’s residence in response to a call for assistance for a woman. The woman claimed Brown pointed a gun at her and that she had run outside to call the police, Reuters reported.
Brown, for his part, kept Instagramming denials of wrongdoing.
“I don’t care y’all going to stay playing me like I’m the villain out here, like I’m going crazy,” he said in a video. “…Good luck when you get the warrant or whatever you need to do. You’re going to walk right up in here and you’re going to see nothing, you idiots.”
