Trey Songz was released on $25,000 bail today, though he faces some serious charges for last night’s
on stage tantrum, including assaulting a police officer.
Trey Songz was released from the Detroit Detention Center earlier today, after he was arrested following an onstage meltdown at the “Big Show at the Joe” concert last night. He began acting belligerently and throwing heavy objects after the event staff cut him off mid-performance, as he had apparently gone past his allotted set time. Police eventually rushed the stage, and according to the Detroit prosecutor, Trey struck an officer in the head, causing him to be taken to the hospital with a concussion. Trey was charged with assaulting a police officer and causing injury as well as aggravated assault.
After posting his $25,000 bail, Trey was driven away from the detention center, and on his way out, his car was greeted by a swarm of reporters as well as fans. Trey ignored the reporters, though he took the time to kiss one fan on the cheek and offer selfies to a group of overjoyed young women. Reporters tried to get a statement while he was posing for selfies, but Trey sternly told them to back off, saying, “‘Scuse me, she’s trying to take a picture.”

While at the detention center, Trey apparently signed autographs for other inmates and even delivered a rendition of “Silent Night,” reports Koco McAboy of WDIV Detroit.
Trey is set to appear in court on January 5.
