R&B singer Trey Songz was arrested on Sunday, January 24, for assault, trespassing, and resisting arrest during a football game in Kansas City. Keep reading to find out all the details.
On Sunday, January 24, singer and rapper Trey Songz was arrested at Arrowhead Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Chiefs during the game against the Buffalo Bills for an alleged assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
According to witnesses, the real assailant was the policeman, while the singer tried to defend himself.
As reported by the TMZ portal, it all started when other attendees began to harass Songz from rows behind and the 36-year-old singer asked them to calm down.
Witnesses say that after this, a policeman approached and without warning attacked Trey to which he responded with a fist to the head.
We have some video fragments that show how after the attack began, the singer put a headlock on the officer while he asked "get him off of me".
Those who were watching the situation were on the singer's side and asking the cop to release Trey, but he finally managed to pin Songz to his seat and after reinforcements arrived, handcuff him and arrest him.
We have learned that the 36-year-old rapper is in custody and will apparently be released after 24 hours.
The charges against him are trespassing, assault on a police officer, and resisting arrest.
The fans do not explain why the trespassing charge if the artist was in the stands of a football stadium.
Many point out that it could be a case of police abuse due to racism, but the truth is that the visual evidence of the case does not show the beginning of the altercation but rather the end, so we could not determine the real cause of the arrest result of the singer Trey Songz.
It is not the first time that the rapper has behavioral problems, in 2018 he was accused by Andrea Buera, of allegedly hitting her in the face during a party in Los Angeles, the case was dismissed for lack of evidence.
Also two years earlier Songz was arrested after a concert for having an angry outcome on stage after he got his mic cut.
Here we leave you the video of the 2016 incident.
