Trey Songz Accused Of Starting Physical Fight With Police Officer After He Refused To Follow Health Guidelines In NFL Stadium
Update #2 (Jan. 27th): Kansas City police have released a statement concerning Trey Songz’s recent arrest after a physical altercation with a police officer at a Chiefs game.
The statement, which was posted on Twitter earlier this week, reads that a man was arrested after he refused to follow health guidelines.
“Regarding arrest at last night’s AFC Championship Game:
During last night’s AFC Championship game, fans complained that a man was not following the Arrowhead fans’ code of conduct or the mandates of the Kansas City Missouri Health Department. They asked for private security to address the matter. The man was not receptive and refused to comply with Arrowhead security. Security then asked him to leave. He refused to leave.”
“At that point they requested law enforcement assistance in ejecting him from the stadium. Officers advised the man that if he did not leave, he would be arrested for trespassing. He still refused to comply, at which point officers told him he was under arrest. The man then punched a police officer and put him in a headlock. Other officers then came to the scene and were able to get the man into custody without further incident.”
The statement adds that he was “arrested and booked at the Jackson County Jail.”
It did not release his name since he had not been charged.
The Jackson County Prosecutor is overseeing the case.
