Chris Brown was arrested Tuesday (Aug. 30) for assault with a deadly weapon after LAPD searched his home for hours yesterday (Aug. 31). However, the singer was released on $250,000 bail Tuesday evening, NBC Los Angeles is reporting.
Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos issued the following statement late Tuesday evening. "Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes," he wrote on Twitter. "Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy."

According to her accusations, Brown and others became irate when she went to admire a diamond cross necklace, ordering her to leave the house immediately. Police didn't comment on whether or not they found a firearm in the home, though TMZ is reporting that both guns and drugs were seized.
