Chris Brown was detained in Paris on Monday, January 21, after a woman filed a rape complaint.

The Associated Press reports that the 29-year-old singer was taken into custody on potential charges of aggravated rape and drug infractions. He remained in custody as of Tuesday, January 22, and investigators have another two days to decide whether to release him or file preliminary charges.

Two other people were detained, including one of Brown’s bodyguards. The woman who filed the complaint said she met Brown and his friends at a club late Tuesday, January 15, before they went to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where she alleged the rape occurred.
