SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, CA (WWBT) -

Chris Brown is now out of jail following a standoff and investigation at his mansion in San Fernando Valley. He posted a $250,000 bail and was released just before midnight Tuesday.

Police say a woman told authorities Brown pointed a gun at her early Tuesday morning. Several patrol vehicles surrounded his home, but Brown did not immediately cooperate with police and refused to speak to officers. He told police they needed a warrant to enter the property.

Police eventually served a search warrant following a 10-hour standoff. Police later announced the arrest and charge against Brown in a news conference. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

LAPD's robbery/homicide division is leading the investigation. It's the division that typically handles high-profile cases involving celebrities. 

Brown's been previously convicted of felony assault.

Brown, who was born in Tappahannock, has posted several videos to his Instagram account while police stand outside (Warning: foul language).

He is due back in court on Sept. 20.
