Singer Chris Brown was arrested Tuesday afternoon, more than 12 hours after detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department were sent to his home in the Tarzana neighborhood after a woman called 911 and said he pulled a gun on her, police said.

Brown was taken to LAPD headquarters, and arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, NBC Los Angeles reports. A 911 call came in at around 3 a.m. from outside Brown's home, and investigators spent several hours on the scene. In an Instagram video, Brown said he would stay put until they had a search warrant, and hours later, he left the house at about 2:30 p.m. to talk with an officer, CBS Los Angeles reports. TMZ says police retrieved at least one gun, other weapons, and drugs from the home.
