Chris Brown was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles for assault with a deadly weapon. Brown's arrest stems from a woman’s claim that Brown pointed a gun at her around 3 a.m. Tuesday in his L.A. home.

Baylee Curran, the accuser, spoke to TMZ earlier on Tuesday and described the incident.

"I admired this one piece, a diamond cross necklace. I did not pick it up, I did not touch it, take it or grab it, anything to that sort," Curran stated.

Curran then said a friend of Brown's told her to get out of the house and not to touch the jewelry.

"[The friend] was calling me names, and that's when Chris Brown kind of went off, pulled out a gun and said, ‘Get the f—k out.'"

Brown was arrested around 5 p.m. PDT.
