Trey Songz rejected a plea deal in his police officer assault case.
The case stemmed from an arrest in Detroit back in December where the R&B singer tore up a stage when organizers pulled the plug on his concert. The singer also allegedly punched a Detroit police sergeant in his head giving him a concussion. The surprised meltdown earned him a short jail stint and charges of malicious destruction of property and resisting and obstructing arrest.
Trey Songz was offered a plea deal which he rejected. The deal would have downgrade his felony assault charge to a misdemeanor. Part of the deal also involves Trigga to plead guilty to one count of aggravated assault and one count of attempted resisting and obstructing a police officer, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, pleaded not guilty in court on Monday. He faces five years in prison if found guilty of assaulting a police officer and causing injury. The plea deal would just see him getting two years probation and probably community service.
