Trey Songz Avoids Jail Time After Plea Deal In Detroit Concert Fracas 


R&B singer Trey Songz reached a deal with Detroit prosecutors that will reduce a felony assault charge stemming from a concert in the Motown city.

Songz, 32, copped to two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace Friday in a Wayne County court. 

The “I Invented Sex” artist was initially charged with aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer.

According to local police, Songz went berserk after he was told to end his performance during his December concert at Joe Louis Arena. Authorities claimed microphones and speakers were thrown from the stage and a police sergeant was punched. They say Songz — whose real name is Tremaine Neverson — landed the punch.

As part of his plea deal, the “I Invented Sex” singer will will serve 18 months of non-reporting probation, undergo a drug and substance abuse screening and complete anger management classes as part of the sentence agreement reached in the case. He won’t serve any jail time. 

Songz, who expressed remorse for his actions, told the court that he’s been coming to Detroit for more than a decade and it was never his intention to disturb the peace.

“I’d just like to give my apologies to the city of Detroit,” Neverson said during the hearing. “I love Detroit.”

Songz trial was set for next month. He faced serious jail time had he been convicted of the felonies.
