Trey Songz Arrested After Altercation With Police Officer At Football Game
R&B singer Trey Songz was arrested in Nashville on Sunday after an altercation with a police officer that took place at a AFC Championship Game.
While details regarding the arrest were not immediately made public, an attorney for Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, confirmed that he had been arrested but did not provide any further details.
TMZ cited a police report that stated that Neverson was arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest, which are both considered misdemeanors, and for assaulting a police officer, which is considered a felony.
The police report detailed that Neverson was being heckled by fans who were seated a few rows behind him and had asked them to stop. At some point after, a police officer got involved, which resulted in the alleged altercation. Neverson allegedly punched the officer in the head and then held him in a headlock before the officer was able to arrest him. Some fans were heard saying that the officer was out of line.
Neverson was also arrested in late-December for trashing the stage that he had been performing on. The singer allegedly began to throw objects from the stage, including microphones and speakers.
