Trey Songz Takes Plea Deal

It looks like Trey Songz – AKA Tremaine Neverson – got himself into some trouble, and this time it’s not anything to do with Halle Berry! E! News confirmed today the 32-year-old R & B singer, pleaded guilty to not one but two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the public.

Trey Songz Pleads Guilty To Two Misdemeanors

And what did he do exactly? Apparently, his arrest occurred because he wouldn’t get off the stage at the Joe Louis Arena on the 28th of December 2016.

When Songz was performing with other artists including, Young M.A., as well as Lil’ Yachty, organizers told him his time on the stage was coming to a close, so he freaked out.

Sources from the Detroit Police Department claim the singer became aggressive and visibly aggravated.

He grabbed microphones as well as monitors from the stage and started chucking them off into the crowd.

An insider said to E! News the Detroit Police attempted to de-escalate the situation but the singer continued to snap out.

Because of his actions, he was summarily arrested then taken into custody for the destruction of property and resisting arrest.

Trey Songz Pleads Guilty To Two Misdemeanors

He stood in front of the court the following morning and was released on a bond of $25,000.

Lucky for Trey, he was given the option of pleading guilty and avoiding several convictions.

Trey took part in a plea deal, where the charges of resisting and obstructing justice, as well as aggravated assault were alleviated.

Unfortunately, for the singer, he was sentenced to 18 months of probation. If that isn’t bad enough, Songz has to take classes for anger management and will submit to screenings for substance abuse as well as pay restitution for his crimes. Hopefully, Trey learned from his mistakes and won’t do it again. However, we can’t help but wonder what is his side of the story?

Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem

GLENDALE, Ariz. — In his first game in an Oakland Raider uniform, Marshawn Lynch didn’t play a down. Yet he provided the most vivid image of the night, sitting for the national anthem before the Raiders’ 20-10 preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.

Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem

The ex-Seattle running back, who came out of retirement to sign with his hometown Raiders, sat on an orange cooler with his arms resting on his knees, while others around him stood.

Although he rarely talks to the media, Lynch has voiced support for quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the anthem last season to protest what he saw as a pattern of police mistreatment of people of color.

Lynch was gone from the locker room by the time reporters arrived.

Coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke to him about the issue after the game.

“He said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself,’” Del Rio said. The coach said that he told Lynch “just so you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem but I’m going to respect you as a man. You do your thing.”

“So that’s a non-issue for me,” Del Rio said.

Quarterback E.J. Manuel said he didn’t know Lynch hadn’t stood for the anthem.

“Obviously, we all support Marshawn because he’s part of our team, but I think that is more of a personal thing,” Manuel said. “I can’t really comment on it too much.”
