LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30 (UPI) — The Los Angeles Police Department finally ended an hours long standoff with trouble-plagued rapper Chris Brown on Tuesday when officers arrived with a warrant to search his home.

Brown attracted police attention around 3 a.m. local time Tuesday when a woman called 911 to claim he’d pointed a gun at her during a fit of rage while she was inside his hilltop Tarzana home.

According to The Los Angeles Times, LAPD officers arrived at the 27-year-old musician’s house early Tuesday and attempted to enter the building — but were turned away by the rapper and told to get a search warrant.

Officers and Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, arrived at the house shortly before police served the warrant at about 1 p.m. PDT. The singer and multiple others were escorted out of the house about an hour later, but no arrests were made.

“No shots were fired, right now that’s all we have,” the LAPD told FOX411 earlier Tuesday.

During the standoff, Brown reportedly tossed out a duffel bag that contained one gun, other weapons and drugs — and was reportedly heard taunting police saying, “come and get me,” as the bag was retrieved.

It wasn’t immediately reported what, if anything, police found inside the home.

Throughout the ordeal, Brown posted two bizarre, profanity-laced rant videos to hisĀ Instagram account, in which he denies any wrongdoing.

“So I don’t sleep half the damn night I just wake up to all these (expletive) helicopters, choppers is around, police out there at the gate,” he said in one video.

“I ain’t did (expletive). I ain’t going to do (expletive),” he added. “And it’s always going to be be (expletive) the police, black lives matter (expletive).”

“I don’t care y’all going to stay playing with me like I’m the villain out here, like I’m going crazy,” the rapper continued. “You guys got me (expletive) up though because 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. I’m tired of (expletive) dealing with you all, y’all the worst gang in the world, the police, and I said it.”

The incident isn’t Brown’s first run-in with police. ABC News Los Angeles reported that officers have been called to his house five times in the past year for various complaints.

Brown also attracted considerable media attention in a domestic assault case in 2009 with a former girlfriend, recording star Rihanna.
