Trey Songz Arrested for Allegedly Punching an Officer After Refusing to Leave the Stage at His Detroit Show

Trey Songz did not take kindly to being told to end his performance at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, on Wednesday night.

Officer Dan Danakowski of the Detroit Police Department tells ET that the 32-year-old R&B singer became “upset and belligerent” when asked to wrap up his concert and leave the stage at 11:30 p.m. That’s when Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, started to throw objects, including microphones and speakers, according to police. Officers assigned to the event attempted to calm him down.

While it’s been reported that a police sergeant was allegedly struck by a flying object, the Wayne County Prosecutors Office tells ET that the person was not an officer. A law enforcement official was, however, allegedly punched by Songz at a later time.

Songz was arrested and held at Detroit Detention Center, where bail had been set at $ 25,000. Wayne County Assistant prosecuting attorney, Mark Hindelang, tells ET that Songz is charged with assaulting a police officer and causing injury, as well as aggravated assault in regard to the person who was struck with a flying object. If found guilty of assaulting an officer, he faces up to four years behind bars and/or a $ 5,000 fine. The latter charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail and/or a $ 1,000 fine.

Songz’s next court date is set for Jan. 5.

The musician’s verified Twitter account retweeted a video of Songz jumping into the audience at the end of the show before returning to the stage.

Earlier that day, Songz posted a message to his fans about reputations. “You become your own reputation unfairly or not,” he wrote. “They gon watch this and they gon think that, they gon talk much while knowing little to nothin. F**k em…keep pushin. #mirrortalk.” 

ET reached out to Songz’s rep, who had no comment at this time.
