Trey Songz has been arrested.
The ‘Back Home’ rapper – whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson – was taken into custody after allegedly getting into an altercation with a police officer at the AFC Championship Game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday (24.01.21).
Witnesses told TMZ that Trey was being heckled by other fans in the stands and asked them to be quiet.
According to the onlookers, a cop then allegedly got physical with the 36-year-old star without provocation and insisted the supposed altercation saw Trey acting in self-defense.
The website had video footage of the scuffle, in which a man said to be the rapper could be seen punching the police officer in the head and trying to get him in a headlock before being detained.
In the clip, fans can be heard shouting and urging the cop to get off the ‘Na Na’ hitmaker until more officers arrived, and then urged for them to arrest their fellow cop instead.
However, Trey was arrested and accused of trespassing, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. He is on a 24-hour hold in custody and is expected to be released on Monday (25.01.21) night.
In October, Trey – who has a 20-month-old son, Noah – revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19.
In a video message on Instagram, he said: “Here with a very important message to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19.
“I’ve taken many tests as I’ve been out protesting, food drives, of course I have a very young son at home, so I get tested periodically and this time it unfortunately came back positive.
“I will be taking it seriously. I will be self-quarantining, I will be in my house until I see a negative sign.”
