Los Angeles police say singer Chris Brown arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Singer Chris Brown has addressed the police activity outside his Tarzana home Tuesday morning after the Los Angeles Police Department said it received a 911 call from a woman requesting help near the location.

Authorities said the woman called from the 5000 block of Corbin Avenue in Tarzana at about 3 a.m.

Officers with the LAPD could be seen outside Brown's home on Citrus Ridge Drive

Detectives were attempting to make contact with Brown who was inside the residence.

Brown posted multiple videos to his official Instagram page addressing the incident.

"I'm asleep have the (expletive) night, I just wake up, all the mother (expletive) helicopter copters is around, police out there at the gate," Brown said. "I'm way too tired to be dealing with this (expletive)."

"Good luck, when you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing you idiots," Brown continued in another video.

"I don't give a (expletive). I'm not running for politics. I don't give a (expletive) if I get personal opinions," Brown said. "But what I do care about is y'all defacing my name as a person and my character and integrity. I am a father. I am one of the best entertainers out here."

Authorities would not provide details on the nature of the call and stated their investigation was ongoing.

Brown has had repeated legal troubles since he was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.

He was charged with misdemeanor assault for striking a man outside a Washington hotel in 2013. A judge ordered Brown to enter rehab, but he was later dismissed from the facility for violating its rules.

Brown then spent two and a half months in custody being shuttled between L.A. and Washington for court hearings by U.S. Marshals.

After the several mishaps, Brown completed his probation period in the Rihanna-assault case in 2015.

Las Vegas police investigated allegations from a woman that Brown hit her and took her cellphone in January. Investigators said they did not find evidence to file charges against Brown.
