Trey Songz Declined Plea Deal In Detroit Assault Case
Trey Songz was offered a plea deal by prosecutors in Detroit after he was charged with a felony count of assaulting a police officer.
The incident happened after his show was cut short in Detroit late last year. Trey went a little nuts after the sound and lights were cut, and began throwing items off the stage. One of the items hit a police officer, and the tantrum landed Trey in a Detroit detention facility for the night.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the plea deal requires that Trey do the following.
Plead guilty to one count of attempted resisting, and obstructing a police officer, and one count of aggravated assault. Trey would also undergo drug and alcohol screening in addition to anger management courses.
This is much better than the possible five year jail sentence that Trey faces if he is found guilty on all charges.
So far Trey and his lawyers have declined the plea deal, but the offer still stands if they decide to change their mind. As of now, Trey has entered a not guilty plea in the case.
Another meeting about the case will happen on March 10th.
