Trey Songz will not be facing any legal charges after his fight with the police officer at the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
It was reported that on January 24th, Songz got into it with an officer after refusing to comply with stadium guidelines that were meant to protect attendees from COVID-19 exposure. Songz refused to leave the stadium in which he was arrested for trespassing.
The singer allegedly punched the officer and put him in a headlock. He was later removed off of the premises and taken to the Jackson County Jail. In a statement released by the Kansas City Police Department about the incident states, “During last night’s AFC Championship game, fans complained that a man was not following the Arrowhead fans’ code of conduct or the Kansas City Missouri Health Department. They asked for private security to address the matter. The man was not receptive and refused to comply with Arrowhead security. Security then asked him to leave. He refused to leave.”
The statement continued, “At that point, they requested law enforcement assistance in ejecting him from the stadium. Officers advised the man that if he did not leave, he would be arrested for trespassing. He still refused to comply, at which point officers told him he was under arrest. The man then punched a police officer and put him in a headlock. Other officers then came to the scene and were able to get the man into custody without further incident.”
Since then, all of the charges against Trey Songz have been dropped. Mike Mansur, a spokesman for the Jackson County prosecutor’s office, stated that there was “insufficient evidence” to file any charges and to take it to trial.
