Trey Songz catches a break in the case following his Chiefs playoff game arrest earlier this year, with prosecutors deciding not to press charges and dropping the case against him.
Earlier this year, Trey Songz caught his first viral moment in perhaps the worst way possible. Bystanders captured footage of Trey wrestling with a police officer at the socially distant Kansas City Chiefs game. The altercation happened in Jackson County, where Trey would eventually go after he was arrested.
The incident reportedly started when the singer refused to wear a mask and police began getting confrontational–this was only a few weeks after footage surfaced of a packed Trey Songz event breaking COVID-19 protocols. Trey has since refuted the order of events that lead to his arrest, but he was still booked for trespassing and resisting arrest, which are both misdemeanors. The potentially big issue came from his charge for assaulting a police officer, which is a low-grade felony.
But luckily, according to TMZ, Trey has caught a big break and will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
Trey Songz will not face criminal charges for his violent altercation with cops at an NFL playoff game … TMZ has learned.
The Prosecutor’s Office for Jackson County, MO tells us they have decided to decline filing charges against the singer, citing insufficient evidence.
By claiming there was insufficient evidence, it may be safe to guess Trey wasn’t in the wrong and all the evidence that was available proved that. Luckily for Trey, he can put this behind him and go back to staying out the way like he usually does.
