The singer, 46, posted the footage online for refusing to open his front door when six police officers showed up at his London home Friday morning.
Brian asked them, “Are you going to kill me often?” filming the arrest for thousands of his fans to see as he told onlookers, “I need your protection folks.”

Officers told the 1990s star that he was arrested on suspicion of malicious communications and taken to Leyton Police Station for questioning.
The ex-boy band member, who rose to fame with songs like House of Love, Hold My Body Tight and Stay Another Day, asked officers if they were at his address ‘under oath’ and repeatedly asked, ‘Why are you doing this to me?’
He broadcast live on YouTube saying, ‘This is it, this is it everyone … this is it.
‘They are all there again, they are there again … they are there again. They’re all here again. They are here. Please can’t you touch this? Listen, you scare me a lot – what are you doing? ‘

A police officer asked Brian, “Are you coming for a chat?”
Speaking behind a metal gate, Brain said, ‘I’ll have a chat, but please don’t –
‘Why do you want to break into my house? I am being arrested, but why do you have to come into my house?
‘Listen, go away, go away, I’ll go with you; you have my word, but please get back from my house.
‘No, you don’t stay that close – you won’t come back into my house. I’m coming with you, why are you doing this to me man?
Please, I need your protectors. Look what happens to me, look how many people are here. What is this? Why are you doing this to me?’

Police explained that Brian was charged with malicious communications, but he still refused to let them into his property.
Brian said, “Malicious communication? Mate, are you gonna kill me often? You’re gonna put me in jail and kill me for the queen. You are.
‘I know people, look at them… look at what they do to me. You make me sick, first of all, are you here on your oath today, are you all here on your oath?
The oath you took to the queen to uphold the common law of the land – are you here today on your oath? I am asking you.’
Officers were unwilling to go into details, as Brian was filming, but the former singer named two victims who he believes played an important role in his arrest.
Eventually, after police said Brian’s behavior made them fear for his safety, he had to go with them – the live stream continued to leave the footage behind.
