American singer, Trey Songz was reportedly arrested after getting into a violent fight with police on Sunday at the AFC Championship Game in Kansa City, Missouri.
A police officer was seen tackling the 36-year-old singer and rapper in a video obtained by TMZ.
Though the events leading up to the fight aren’t shown in the video, fans nearby claimed the police officer was the own at fault.
The video, which was shot from several rows behind where Songz was seated, shows him sitting in his chair as a police officer stands in the row in front of him.
As the officer is grappling with Songz, the singer seems to connect a punch with the officers head.
He can also be heard shouting, ‘Get off of me!’
Another man standing to Songz’s right, who appears to be part of the venue’s security staff, also leans down to try to subdue Songz.
As Songz (real name: Tremaine Neverson) stands up and seems to try to free himself, the police officer puts his head down and tries to knock him down while Songz tries to put him in a headlock.
‘Get off of him!’ shouts one person, while another can be heard screaming, ‘What the f***, he didn’t do it!’
‘Arrest the cop!’ a third voice cries out.
A witness to the assault claimed that fans a few rows behind Songz had been taunting him, and he had asked them to cool down.
They said that the officer went after Songz without warning, rather than the hecklers, which seemed to take the rapper off guard before he started defending himself.
Songz was reportedly handcuffed and arrested once additional officers arrived and were able to separate him and the police officer, who appeared to be white.
According to a source in law enforcement, Songz was arrested and charged with two misdemeanours, resisting arrest and trespassing, and a felony, assaulting a police officer.
The Can’t Help But Wait singer is reportedly on a 24-hour hold in jail and is expected to be released on Monday night.
Earlier in the day, Songz posted on Instagram as he flew on a private jet to the high-profile game, which helped determine the team who would compete in the Super Bowl.
He also shared video of the game, which saw the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Buffalo Bills 38 to 24.
