There's cameras out everywhere and that footage is being used against Trey Songz.
On Tuesday, a Wayne County Circuit Court judge ruled to allow Snapchat video and still photography in the forthcoming assault trial against the singer. According to WDIV, one photo shows Songz apparently giving the middle finger to police during his booking photo. A video from a Las Vegas show features the singer saying, "F*** the police."
Last year, Songz (real name: Tremaine Neverson) was charged with assaulting a police officer during a December 28 gig at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena. Police claim that the "Bottoms Up" singer got riled up when he was told to wrap up his set at 11:30pm. The 32-year-old allegedly said, “Go on and do it, cut me off,” followed by, “A n**** cut me off, I’m going the f*** crazy. You understand?”
His mic was cut and that's when Songz reportedly began throwing things onstage. One object hit someone in the head. When police approached the crooner, he allegedly hit an officer and caused a concussion.
Fans caught footage from the incident:
MLive shares that the video and photos that the judge is allowing could be damaging to the singer's defense.
The trial is slated for September 12. Until then, Songz remains free on a $25,000 bond.
