Trey Songz lost his cool in a major way at the end of his performance in Detroit Wednesday night, December 28, at the annual “Big Show at the Joe” concert.
The 32-year old singer, born Tremaine Neverson, became “upset and belligerent” after he was told to leave the stage before he finished his set,.according to Detroit Police Department spokesman, Officer Dan Donakowski.
“He was told his set was over, that he would have to get off the stage,” Donakowski told the Detroit Free Press. “At which time, he became irate and started throwing objects (from) the stage; speakers, microphones, anything he could get his hands on.”
A cop from the Gang Intelligence Unit, who was assigned to the event, was injured by a flying object as he tried to calm Songz down. The officer was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
“They say they gon’ cut my mic off ’cause I’m taking too much time. If they cut me off remember it and text whoever you want to, and tweet whoever you want to, and tell everybody. ‘Cause if a n!gga cut me off I’m going the f*ck crazy,” the “Say Aah” hit maker told the crowd inside the Joe Louis Arena prior to his meltdown.
Songz was arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property and for resisting and obstructing arrest.
He’s currently being held at at the Detroit Detention Center awaiting arraignment.
