Trey Songz Sentenced to 18 Months Probation
Trey Songz is on probation.
The R&B superstar has avoided jail time by pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace in the wake of a chaotic performance at Joe Louis Arena in December, where he was also charged with aggravated assault, and obstructing a police officer.
As part of his plea deal, Trey’s other charges were dropped, according to TMZ. He will now face 18 months of probation, including anger management classes, mandatory drug tests, and a fine for an undisclosed amount.
According to past reports regarding the incident, Trey could have faced up to four years in prison for allegedly assaulting a police officer during the incident, which reportedly took place after he was cut off from performing at “The Big Show at the Joe.”
A couple of months after the arrest, Tremaine spoke about the incident on “The Breakfast Club.” “There’s so many layers to that,” he said. “What people don’t understand is that the people who cut my music off have actually been working for me for seven-eight years, on tour with me, we got personal relationships. And they started my show three minutes late and ended it five minutes early. So, people don’t understand that.
“I definitely felt disrespected, mostly because these people, literally, every tour you’ve seen me on, have been working for me,” he continued. “There was fraudulent claims about me doing this and that backstage. I don’t ever speak on it too much, what negativity gets thrown in the air because it will settle itself.”
