DETROIT, Mich. – Singer Trey Songz has been charged in connection with an assault at his concert at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday night.

Tremaine Neverson, 32, of Virginia, known as Trey Songz, is charged with assaulting a police officer causing injury and aggravated assault.

According to Detroit Police, Neverson became belligerent when he ran out of time and was asked to get off the stage. Neverson began throwing speakers, microphones, and other objects.
