Chris Brown has been released from jail after posting a $250,000 bail, according to The Wrap. He was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The R&B singer was in custody at the Los Angeles County jail until 11 p.m. Tuesday, following an hours-long standoff with police at his Los Angeles mansion that began 3 a.m. the same day. 

Following Brown’s release, the singer’s attorney, Mark Geragos, tweeted Wednesday morning that the allegations against his client are “demonstrably false.”

A woman alleged that Brown threatened her with a gun. Police showed up to Brown’s home Tuesday, where he was holed inside, and reportedly retrieved weapons and drugs that the singer threw outside in a duffel bag.

Brown is expected to appear in court on September 20, according to People.
