CHRIS BROWN ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON

After a bizarre, hours-long standoff, L.A. police officers took Chris Brown into custody late Tuesday afternoon and said the singer would be arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Lt. Chris Ramirez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, said officers were transporting Brown from his Tarzana home to downtown L.A., where he would be formally booked.

Police began searching Brown's sprawling property as they hunted for a weapon the performer is said to have used to threaten a woman. 

Shortly before 1 p.m., officers entered the residence after taking much of the morning to obtain a search warrant. Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, was on the scene as LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division detectives searched the property.

At least half a dozen people exited the home, a few of them holding their hands behind their heads as police patted them down.

"We're getting the cooperation of everyone that came out," Ramirez said, after informing reporters that officers had served a search warrant.

Geragos told The Times that he was inside the home with Brown, who denies any wrongdoing. The warrant was served shortly after Geragos arrived.  

Deputy Chief Bob Green had described the standoff between Brown and officers as "long and protracted."
