Police entered the Southern California home of Chris Brown on a search warrant Tuesday afternoon. Investigators claim that the R&B singer threatened a woman with a gun after an altercation in his home late Monday night.

After the singer allegedly pulled a gun on a woman, Baylee Curran, earlier this morning, police arrived and encircled his home in an attempt to gain access and find the weapon in question. The standoff lasted about three hours.

Curran allegedly spent some time last night in Brown’s hot tub before coming inside and finding the singer with his friends checking out some jewelry a man had brought. She touched one of the items and commented on it, which apparently sent those present into an uproar. At this point, Brown allegedly pulled out a gun and told her to “get the f*ck out.”

Brown turned over a duffel bag containing a least one gun, other unspecified weapons, and some drugs to local police just moments before they entered his home.

This isn’t the first time police have been called to Brown’s residence. Brown has been visited by the police five times in the past year due to various disturbance of the peace complaints.

Brown was sentenced to five years of probation in 2009 for hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna. His probation ended in 2015.

In 2013, Brown struck a man outside a Washington hotel and was charged with misdemeanor assault. The singer was ordered into rehab but was dismissed from the facility for violating its rules. He spent two and a half months in custody, with U.S. marshals shuttling him between Los Angeles and the nation’s capital for court hearings.

In another incident while in treatment, Brown allegedly threw a brick at his mother’s car following a counseling session. This was after Brown had completed court-ordered anger management classes.

In January, a Las Vegas woman alleged that Brown hit her and took her cellphone. Police investigated but did not find evidence to file charges. He also dealt with a fraud complaint against him in the Philippines last summer for allegedly canceling a New Year’s Eve concert.
