Popular American singer, Trey Songz, has been arrested by the police. The singer was arrested for trespassing, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer which is a low-grade felony.
TMZ reports that Songz is on a 24-hour hold, and will likely be released tomorrow night.
Trey Songz found himself in the middle of a physical altercation with a police officer during the KC Chiefs’ game, and fans who witnessed it say the police was out of line.
According to a video obtained from Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, at first, it shows Songz and the officer in a struggle. The singer throws a punch at the officer’s head and gets him in a headlock, but then the officer pins Songz to a seat.
A witness stated that the whole thing started when Trey was being heckled by some fans a few rows behind him and he asked them to stop.
The officer approached the singer, and without warning, went after him. The witness said Songz was caught off guard when the officer got physical, he defended himself.
In the video, fans shouted at the officer, telling him to get off Songz until additional officers arrived. Fans were yelling for the officer to be arrested.
Once backup got there, they were able to separate Songz and the policeman but they put Songz in handcuffs.
The singer is currently in custody, but it’s unclear if he’s being booked for anything or simply detained.
So far the singer’s representatives are yet to comment.
