Trey Songz arrested after brawl with police officer at football game as cop is seen wrestling singer to the ground

RAPPER Trey Songz has been arrested following a bust up at a football game.

The 36-year-old, real name Tremaine Neverson, was seen being wrestled to the ground by a police officer at the AFC Championship Game in Kansa City, Missouri Sunday.

Dramatic footage shows Songz entwined with the officer, as the cop appears to be laying on top of him as the pair grapple in a row of chairs.

Bystanders can be heard yelling: "Get off".

And somebody in the crowd appears to shout: "Arrest the cop!"

At one point the rapper frees himself from the scrum, connecting at least one punch with the police officer and attempting to put his arm over the cop's head.

The footage, obtained by TMZ, is shot from several rows behind the rapper.

The events leading up to the scrap are unclear, although several people – including one man who appears to be venue staff – do step in to try to subdue Songz.

A witness to the fight claimed to TMZ the rapper was being heckled by fans and had asked them to calm down, at which point he was approached by the cop.

The site writes: "The officer approached Trey, and without warning, went after him.

"The witness says Trey was totally caught off guard when the officer got physical, and started to defend himself."

Both Songz and the officer were eventually separated, and the rapper has been taken into custody, TMZ said.

The publisher added Songz's reps could not be reached for comment.
