DETROIT (WWJ) – Trey Songz will be returning to a Detroit courtroom in February to face charges that he assaulted a police officer during an outburst following a concert at Joe Louis Arena in December.
A probable cause conference for the R&B singer, whose biological name is Tremaine Neverson, was swiftly held Thursday morning in 36th District Court. A judge set a preliminary examination for February 10, with no changes to Neverson’s bond conditions. Neverson, who appeared in person for the hearing, was reportedly in and out of the court in less than five minutes.
Neverson is charged with one count of assaulting a police officer and one count of aggravated assault. He was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
The incident happened on December 28 as Neverson was closing out “The Big Show at The Joe,” which also featured Chris Brown and Lil Yachty.
Police say the “Bottoms Up” singer became belligerent on stage around 11:30 p.m. when someone told him his time was up. The 32-year-old taunted those in charge, repeatedly singing “Go on and do it, cut me off,” followed by, “A n**** cut me off, I’m going the f*** crazy. You understand?”
When his microphone was finally cut, police Neverson went into a frenzy, throwing microphones and speakers, whatever he could get his hands on, across the stage.
Officers went on stage to calm situation down, but Neverson continued throwing things. According to prosecutors, Neverson threw an object which struck an individual in the head. When police approached Neverson to arrest him, the singer allegedly struck an officer with his fist — causing a concussion.
Neverson was arrested at the scene.
