LOS ANGELES (CBSDFW.COM/AP) Singer Chris Brown has been bailed out of jail. He was released late last night, just hours after being arrested following a day-long police standoff at his Los Angeles home.

Los Angeles County jail records show he was released late Tuesday night after posting $250,000.

He was arrested hours earlier on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman called for help from a gathering at his home.

The arrest marked the conclusion of nearly 14-hour-long stand-off with police.

Police say officers first responded to Brown's Los Angeles home around 3:00 a.m.

The woman was not identified and police didn't elaborate on the assistance she needed. However, model Baylee Curran told the Los Angeles Times that Brown pointed a gun at her face.

Brown later posted messages on social media proclaiming his innocence.
