"The Siege", as it has been dubbed by the American media, lasted almost a few hours. When the police were able to get into the house, they detained several people (LA Times writes about six), and at this time they have already begun to cooperate with the investigation. However, the police did not disclose the details of the investigation, and the only anonymous source told that during the search a bag with "evidence relating to the case" was found thrown out of the window.

Brown's lawyer immediately after arrest claimed that the singer denies any charges and plans soon to be released on bail.

Judging by the amount of the bail, the police have not discovered yet something serious at Brown’s action.

Chris Brown

Chris Brown became known in mid-zero, recording immediately after school album «Chris Brown», who started from second place on the Billboard charts. Now in his credit eight solo albums and several records, written in collaboration with other musicians, numerous awards - such as, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, one Grammy Award (for «F.A.M.E.») and 15 nominations for it. However, in 2009, the 20-year-old musician has very different glory.

In 2009, his ex-girlfriend Rihanna (they were of the same age, and their careers have evolved about the same) accused the musician of domestic violence - he beat the girl, escaped from the police, but soon gave himself up. The Court found Brown guilty, and sentenced him to a five-year suspended sentence (in the end he spent on probation for six years), he was sentenced to a thousand hours of community service and was ordered to undergo a course of rehabilitation for persons who are prone to violence. At the same time he was forbidden to approach Rihanna.  

However, a few years later the pair almost made it up, trying to renew old relationships, they even recorded compositions together, but in the end they did finally break up.

Although his probation ended only in 2015 (Brown even was during a short time in prison, when he was still fired from rehabilitation courses), the singer has already managed to get into some bad stories. So, at the beginning of this year, the police carried out the investigation, when a certain woman accused him of beating. In addition, the criminal past led to the fact that Canada has banned him from entering, and the Australian authorities have asked to explain why they should let Brown in the country.
