Trey Songz Arrested In Springfield, MA Following Shooting

R&B singer Trey Songz was arrested in Springfield, MA early Sunday (Nov 4) along with several members of his entourage following a shooting outside a local venue.

Songz was charged with behaving as a disorderly person and resisting arrest.

The singer, born Tremaine Neverson, was released after posting $500 bond.

The shooting took place in the parking lot of The Hippodrome, where Songz performed Saturday evening.

According to Lt. John Slepchuck of the Springfield Police Department, police officers where present when shots were fired behind the venue at 1700 Main Street.

“Our disorderly person charge can involve several different things including the use of certain language, failure to do what an officer asks,” Slepchuck told “[Neverson] was interfering with an active crime scene involving a victim.”

The alleged shooter, 29-year-old Anthony Williams remains in police custody facing multiple charges, including assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm without a license and assault with intent to murder.

He is scheduled to be arraigned this morning. Williams’ unidentified victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.

It is unclear whether Songz is connected to either man.

The singer was connected to another similar incident in less than a month ago, though he was not directly involved.

Songz’ October 11 performance at Opera Nightclub in Atlanta was interrupted when an altercation between two men in the audience erupted in gunfire.
