Trey Songz is facing new legal issues. Back in May, the singer/songwriter's domestic violence case against a woman who claimed that he punched her at a Los Angeles party was dropped. Now, Songz is being sued by a Detroit police officer.
According to TMZ, Sgt. Robert Avery says that on December 28, 2016, he was on duty at the artist's Joe Louis Arena concert. The cop claims that Songz shouted "if a n**** cut me off I'm goin' the f*** crazy" on his mic. Apparently, his show was running over. So, the venue shut him down.
"Trey ended up hurling heavy equipment off the stage and then jumped off the stage himself, picked up a mic stand, threw it and hit a photographer ... who's also suing," TMZ reads. Right after, Sgt. Avery arrested Songz. But, when he tried taking the singer into custody, Songz allegedly punched him in his face.

TMZ adds: "The officer fell to the ground and hit his head on the concrete. He allegedly suffered visible bruising and swelling to his right temple, as well as a contusion to his left forehead ... he also hurt his hip. The cop says Trey hurled hateful comments, including, "F*** you cracker. White motherf******. F*** all you honkeys and f*** the police."
Songz was soon cuffed and charged with assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer and aggravated assault. He would later plead guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace.
