Police searched Chris Brown's car on Saturday (07Feb15) after receiving an anonymous tip alleging one of his passengers was carrying a weapon.

Officers targeted the Kiss Kiss hitmaker's Lamborghini outside Sayer nightclub in Los Angeles while the singer was inside the venue attending a pre-Grammy Awards party held by rapper T.I.

Sources tell Tmz.com that the police detained the friend who was alleged have to have been carrying the gun and searched the car, but they did not find a firearm.

Brown has been present at two separate nightclub shootings in recent months, but the singer is not believed to have been involved and escaped without injury.
