The singer accused of punching a Detroit police sergeant after a concert in Detroit pleaded guilty to two reduced counts of disturbing the peace today and apologized. The R&B artist appeared before Wayne County Circuit Judge Lawrence Talon this morning in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice in Detroit and was sentenced on the two misdemeanors.
He said he’s been coming to the city for more than 12 years and it wasn’t his intention to disturb the peace.
“I’d just like to give my apologies to the city of Detroit,” Neverson said during the hearing. “I love Detroit.”
Trey Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, will serve 18 months of non-reporting probation and undergo a drug and substance abuse screening and anger management classes as part of the sentence agreement reached in the case. He won’t serve any jail time.
