: Brown's alleged victim posted her own short video on Instagram Tuesday afternoon. “Do you all honestly think I wanted this and I caused this? If someone put a gun to your head, what would you do? Call the police?" Baylee Curran said. Curran's Instagram account has since been made private.

: Attorney Mark Geragos arrives at Chris Brown's house at 12:30pPT. The LAPD confirms a half hour later that Brown allowed them inside the home. Geragos is the lawyer who guided Brown through his Rihanna beating case.
