Chris Brown Tested for Drugs in Jail

8/31/2016 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0830_chris_brown_tmz-45Chris Brown was tested for drugs after his arrest, and authorities may have found something, because our sources say there were drugs at the house before he allegedly pulled a gun on a guest.

Law enforcement sources say Chris gave up a blood sample Monday night after arriving at the jail.

Brown's accuser, Baylee Curran, was on "TMZ Live" Tuesday and when we asked about drug use she got very nervous and wouldn't answer.

As we reported, during the standoff Chris threw a duffel bag out the window and cops found 2 guns and drugs. His arrest was for felony assault with a deadly weapon ... not drugs.

Chris Brown Accuser Grand Larceny Suspect In Plaza Hotel Theft

8/31/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0830_baylee-curran_chris_brown_instagram_tmzThe woman claiming Chris Brown pulled a gun on her is wanted in NYC for questioning in connection with criminal theft ... for allegedly stealing a fancy designer purse at a swanky hotel.

The incident could be significant in the Chris Brown case, because alleged victim Baylee Curran claims a certain piece of jewelry that caught her eye triggered the events that led to her 911 call.

Baylee was vacationing with a few friends at The Plaza back in 2013 when they began arguing in the hotel. According to police docs, Baylee snatched a $1,000 Louis Vuitton purse from one of the girls and ran out of the hotel.

The purse contained $200 in cash, as well as credit cards and a Michael Kors wallet.

Security chased Baylee, who allegedly dropped the purse but somehow fled with the contents.

By the time cops arrived Baylee was long gone. There's a warrant of sorts -- it's called an I-Card -- which will allow NYPD cops to pick her up and take her to the station for questioning, if they find her in the city.

Apparently, the incident was bad enough that the alleged purse-snatching victim got a restraining order against Baylee from an L.A. judge.

Baylee's rep tells TMZ she had no idea New York City cops wanted her for questioning. She also claims her friend was the thief ... not her.

TMZ broke the story ... Baylee called 911 and accused Chris of pulling a gun on her when she says all she was doing was admiring some jewelry.

Gladys wants the person now running the restaurants previously managed by her son, Shanga Hankerson, to 86 her from signs and promotions for the chicken and waffle joints.

Gladys says she gave the green light to use her name and image for the restaurants back in '99, but put the kibosh on the deal a few months ago after the eateries were raided by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Her son was arrested for allegedly pocketing a million bucks.

And one more thing ... in addition to money and an injunction, Gladys wants all her memorabilia adorning the restaurants returned to her.

Taylor Swift Can't Be Impartial in Rape Case ... Says the Judge

Breaking News

0829-taylor-swift-TMZ-03Taylor Swift was just dismissed as a prospective juror in an aggravated rape/kidnapping case because she told the judge she has a pending civil case that also involves sexual assault.

Taylor was being questioned about possible bias in a case involving a man who allegedly penetrated a woman with a broom handle after holding her at bay. 

The singer told the judge she has a case in Colorado in which a DJ allegedly fondled her backstage during a concert, so the judge didn't think she could be impartial.

Taylor was dismissed from the jury panel for cause.
