Trey Songz arrested for assaulting an officer at Kansas City Chiefs game
Trey Songz has been arrested for trespassing, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer, according to reports.
The singer and rapper was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with a police officer during a football game between Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills on Sunday (Jan. 24, 2021).
The 36-year-old singer threw a punch on the cop’s head and got him in a headlock. The cop, however, fought back and managed to pin Trey to a seat.
According to an eyewitness at the stadium, the cop was the aggressor. It reportedly started when Trey was being heckled by some audience who sat a few rows behind him. The Petersburg native asked them to chill out, but the officer approached Trey and went after him without warning.
The source said Trey appeared to get caught off guard and tried to defend himself. In the video, fans were heard yelling at and asking the officer to get off Trey until more officers arrived. They demanded that the said officer be arrested.
The other officers eventually separated Trey and the first cop and they put the “Heart Attack” hitmaker in handcuffs. He was later booked for trespassing and resisting arrest, which are both misdemeanors. He’s also facing a low grade felony charge for assaulting a police officer.
TMZ obtained footage of the altercation, which took place at Arrowhead Stadium.
Last month, Trey Songz came under investigation after approximately 500 people attended an Ohio nightclub to see him perform.
The club received a citation for improper conduct and disorderly activities after attendees were seen to be violating COVID-19 health orders.
