As previously reported, police went to the singer’s dressing room following mayhem that happened when the performer was told his show at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit was over and he had to leave the stage.
Here’s footage of the incident.
Police said the singer threw things and a cameraman was hit and injured with a microphone stand. When police went to arrest him, Trey punched a police sergeant in the head, officials said.
He was initially charged with a felony count of assaulting a police officer causing injury, which is punishable by up to four years in prison, and a misdemeanor count of aggravated assault, which carries of a maximum penalty of one year in jail, officials said. Those charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal.
One of his attorneys, Gabi Silver, told the court today that Neverson has no prior criminal history, accepted responsibility for his role that night and is a charitable man.
