Gun Case Against Chris Brown Reportedly Not Moving Forward
The gun case against Chris Brown is reportedly not moving forward. This past August, Brown had been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after he reportedly threatened Miss California winner Baylee Curran with a gun.
TMZ reports that the case against the "Grass Ain't Greener" singer is going to be dropped as the LAPD has not found enough evidence against the R&B singer. When the standoff was going on, Brown allegedly tossed a duffel bag with two guns in it out the window, but cops feel that they will be unable to definitively connect them to the singer.
The worst that the singer will likely get is misdemeanor assault, which is about half as serious as having a felony gun charge on his record. Brown was freed following the incident after he posted a $250,000 bail.
The standoff with police reportedly lasted 10 hours and police arrived on the scene around 3 a.m. following a 911 call made by Curran. Brown has repeatedly denied all charges against him and Curran's credibility has also been called into question.
The dismissal of the charges against him will come just in time, as Brown was recently denied entry into Japan following the gun case. The arrest barred him from obtaining a work visa in order to perform at the Tokyo International Forum. A Japanese consulate official told the gossip site that the country has a low tolerance policy in regards to people who have criminal backgrounds and cases in progress.
His legal team asserted that there is no real case against him and that being denied the visa was unnecessary. They also said that he planned on reapplying for entry into the country. Brown also ran into trouble entering Australia because of his probation that stemmed from the 2009 Rihanna case.
