Trey Songz appears in Detroit court for assault charges


DETROIT – Singer Trey Songz is accused of injuring a Detroit police sergeant when he became belligerent on stage during his show Dec. 28 at Joe Louis Arena. 

Tremaine Neverson, known better as Trey Songz, was arrested after the show with assaulting a police officer causing injury and aggravated assault. 

Neverson was in court Thursday for a probable cause conference. A preliminary examination was set for Feb. 10.

According to Detroit police, Neverson became belligerent when he ran out of time and was asked to get off the stage. He began throwing speakers, microphones, and other objects. Several concertgoers told Local 4 they were surprised to see him do this. 

Detroit police officers went on stage and tried to calm him down, but he continued to throw things. A Detroit police sergeant was hit in the head and taken to the hospital with a concussion. The prosecutor's office said the officer was hit with Neverson's fist. The sergeant has since been released.
