Lawyer for Chris Brown: no guns, drugs found in house search
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police did not find guns or drugs during a search of singer Chris Brown's mansion before his arrest on allegations he threatened a model at gunpoint, his lawyer said Friday.
Attorney Mark Geragos said he was present during the search and police did not find evidence to corroborate the accuser's story, including a specific piece of jewelry that she said triggered the incident.
Baylee Curran told reporters that Brown pointed a gun at her face after he and another man became angry with her when she admired the man's diamond necklace.
Brown was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was released on $250,000 bail.
Geragos said the accuser's story was fabricated.
"This woman got irate when she was asked to leave because she was acting in an erratic manner," Geragos said.
Capt. Andy Neiman said the Los Angeles Police Department is working with prosecutors to review the evidence and not commenting on the case.
The Grammy-winning Brown has had legal trouble since his felony conviction in the 2009 assault of then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed probation in that case last year.
Brown has also faced accusations that were proven to be false, Geragos said. He has also had stalkers and several break-ins, including one by a woman who moved into his house while he was away.
