Chris Brown (main, circled in red, and top right) has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a prolonged, 11-hour stand-off with the police at his $4million mansion. Baylee Curran (left), a former Miss California Regional 2016, called 911 at around 3am on Tuesday claiming a Brown had pointed a gun at her after she admired his friend's jewelry, TMZ reported. Police arrived at Brown's sprawling estate in Los Angeles, but no one answered the door and it took hours before they obtained a warrant to search the home for a weapon. Emerging from his mansion around 2.43pm (PT), Brown took off his sweatshirt and sat on the ground in front of the door, appearing relaxed before he went back inside around 3pm (PT). Authorities said Brown was cooperating with the Los Angeles Police Department before he was arrested just after 5pm (PT). LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division detectives searched the property, while Brown's entourage of about half a dozen people were patted down and interviewed by authorities (bottom right).

The 31-year-old Smile songstress was seen swigging Jack Daniels directly from the bottle, guzzling multiple alcoholic beverages and smoking before she was carried out of the bash by her boyfriend MC Meridian Dan. As she lived it up at the annual West London street party Lily appeared to lose control following her binge, which she blamed on being 'a light weight' who drank 'on an empty stomach' - although in subsequent Twitter messages, Lily admitted a swig of whiskey was 'the beginning of the end'.
Mum who says it's her DUTY to ensure her teen son's a good lover... so they've discussed the most intimate details. Utterly toe-curling - or responsible modern parenting?
AMANDA LYNCH decided to speak to her 17-year-old son Stanley (pictured together right and inset in 2003) about the birds and the bees. She knows the conversations would have been different if they had been held with his late father (pictured together left at Stanley's Christening) - but firmly believes that mothers of boys shouldn't fear speaking to their sons about sex.
Torment Willy Wonka star hid behind those twinkling blue eyes: How Gene Wilder's clownish characters concealed a life battered by tragedy
The Hollywood star played a string of charmingly off-kilter characters in films such as The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. The famous actor died on August 29 in Stamford, Connecticut, US, aged 83. He famously played Willy Wonka in the musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's Charlie And The Chocolate Factory in 1971 (right). And 13 years later, he starred in The Woman in Red with actress Kelly Le Brock (left). But the clownish characters he played concealed a life battered by tragedy. A difficult childhood was poisoned by savage school bullying, sexual abuse and a paralysing guilt over a terminally ill mother that propelled him to sexual abstinence and even into the arms of a religious sect.
The Jungle 'is ready to blow' after two are stabbed in gang clash between Afghans and Sudanese migrants trying to board lorries
The men, in their early 20s, were part of a larger group confronted by Sudanese migrants in The Jungle camp. They are in a serious condition in hospital, one with a wound to an artery in his neck.

Teacher banned from classroom over prom night Travelodge tryst with pupil 'now works with her husband for Christian charity - and gave birth to his son last week'
Isabelle Graham, 28, (pictured with her husband Andrew on their wedding day) who insisted she was a devout Christian who had been saving herself for her wedding night, has been banned from teaching by the General Teaching Council for Scotland. The allegations she had relations with a pupil emerged after a photograph taken in an Edinburgh Travelodge showed a blonde woman (left), alleged to be Graham, lying under the duvet. In the background is a young man clutching a bottle of wine and is believed to be the schoolboy named only as Pupil A - the boy she is accused of sleeping with. Graham, who has already left Whitburn Academy in West Lothian, and moved abroad has been barred from the profession. Mrs Graham, who declined to attend the disciplinary hearing, provided a statement to be read in her defence. In it, she claimed that she had been the 'victim' on the night. She said that if the photo taken on the night did feature her, she was clearly unconscious and therefore it was 'posed' without her consent.
Pippa made me an overnight success: His family founded Clarks, but Sebastian Edwards quit the firm to design his own shoes - and his gamble paid off when Miss Middleton wore a pair and sales soared
Edwards happily worked his way up at the family firm and spent 15 years in the business, most recently as a designer. But despite his success and contentment, he decided to quit. Four years ago he hung up his Clarks boots and launched his own brand - Seven Boot Lane - with his wife. And the couple found themselves in the limelight when the Duchess of Cambridge's sister was photographed in their boots.
Are these the worst sunburn fails EVER? Eye-watering photos of red raw skin and ridiculous tan lines will have you reaching for the sunscreen
Most of us have had to smother ourselves in after-sun at some point in our lives in a bid to ease the pain of sunburnt skin, but the epic fails of these hapless sunbathers take some beating. From swirly patterns on backs that resemble works of art, to a woman who baked herself with a bowl and spoon on her lap, the embarrassing snaps take sunburn mishaps to a whole new level. But while many see the funny side of their unfortunate tan lines, their lack of diligence in the sun would have no doubt caused them lots of pain.

The senior police officer in charge of protecting Prince William and wife Kate at their home in Norfolk has dramatically quit her post after apparently criticising her force publicly on social media. Norfolk and Suffolk assistant chief constable Sarah Hamlin, 48, (pictured) announced her departure after 30 years' service in a series of controversial tweets today. The officer was appointed in 2014 to lead the Royalty Protection team providing security to William, Kate, Prince George and Princess Charlotte at their home Anmer Hall on the Queen's Sandringham estate. But this morning she astonished her 3,600 followers on her official Twitter account by saying that she was leaving as her 'values' no longer fitted with the force. She tweeted: 'After 30 years @NorfolkPolice I've resigned to the fact that my values no longer fit the org. I can't make a difference, support front-line.' In a later tweet, she posted: 'And so I wish colleagues & friends all the best. Let's hope £policing can recover & the officers & staff welfare is prioritised.'
Police couple vow to jail great-grandfather, 86, if he steps foot on the roadside verge outside his home
Jon and Sara Webb, who both have backgrounds in the police, obtained a court order which means great-grandfather Phil Taylor, 86, faces arrest if he steps one foot on the roadside verge next to his home in Whitby, Yorkshire. The Webbs, who own the 100 yard verge, went to the courts after they were subject to a campaign of terror at the hands of their neighbour. The retired house-builder performed 'wheelies' on the immaculate grass and smashed boulders the Webbs placed along the edge of the verge, claiming he was 'protecting his right of way'. Mr and Mrs Webb told a court that his behaviour left them too afraid to leave their home. Mr Taylor, who served in the East Yorkshire Regiment, was found guilty of harassing the Webbs by York Magistrates.

She looked the picture of happiness as she left the venue hand-in-hand with her new husband, who opted for a beige linen two-piece suit and a pale blue shirt.
Restaurant boss gets his own back on couple who slammed him on TripAdvisor by releasing CCTV footage of them leaving without paying £80 bill
A restaurant in Sheffield has shamed a customer who did a runner by releasing CCTV footage on social media after they posted a bad review on Trip Advisor. Vito Ciaraolo, owner of Vito's in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, could not believe the audacity of the man, who posted the message after finally being made to pay for the meal following eight months of searching. The 53-year-old noticed a Trip Advisor review by a user he calls, Mr A G, titled 'The worst and most overpriced place to eat in Sheffield'. He soon realised that the reviewer was in fact the same customer, who he claims ran away with his female companion without paying an £80 bill in January this year. 'They just seemed like a regular nice couple,' said Mr Ciaraolo, who fans of BBC2's gangster drama Peaky Blinders may recognise after he was cast in the series back in 2013.

'Get the f*** out the road... I'm going to knock you out': BBC star Jeremy Vine posts shocking footage of WOMAN road rage driver threatening him and making sign of a 'gun' in the street

The woman allegedly mimed pulling the trigger of a gun at Mr Vine in a second confrontation that took place just 30 seconds later. Veteran broadcaster Mr Vine confirmed he has reported the incident to the police.
'I'm angry at being left in the wilderness': GP who died of cancer criticises colleagues for failing to diagnose her in blog post published AFTER she died
Writing posthumously in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) online Dr Lisa Steen described how she 'spent two years wandering in the wilderness of the medically unexplained' before she was finally diagnosed with kidney cancer with multiple bone metastases in July 2014. The mother-of-two, who lived in Cambridge, worked as GP Lead for drug and alcohol service Inclusion. She had been suffering a myriad of symptoms since August 2012 but despite repeatedly going to the doctor it was initially put down to 'health anxiety'. Her cancer was finally discovered two years later but it was too late, as by that point it had spread to her bones. She died at the end of February this year aged just 43 after keeping the disease at bay with chemotherapy, having a kidney removed and undergoing a hip replacement.
