Trey Songz assault case is heading to trial! Last year he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer following an onstage meltdown in Detroit, Michigan. The singer was caught on camera jumping off the stage into the crowd as security staff tried to stop him and he appeared to throw items at police officials.

He also hurled microphones and speakers off the stage, with one object striking a cop on the head.

Trey was taken into custody for malicious destruction of property and resisting arrest, and was subsequently charged with aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer causing injury.

A spokesperson for the prosecutor’s office told CNN Trey Songz also “struck an officer with his fist causing a concussion.” He spent the night behind bars and was arraigned in December, when his bail was set at $25,000 .

On Thursday (March 16), the singer appeared via video for a hearing in Wayne County Circuit Court. The judge set a September trial date and a court conference for May 31.

If convicted, the singer could face jail time and significant fines. However, Neverson’s lawyers say there is a “50/50 chance” a plea agreement can be reached, according to The Detroit News.
