Songz Arrested After Weekend Shooting

R+B singer TREY SONGZ has been arrested in connection with a shooting in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Can't Help But Wait star - real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson - was among a group of men taken into custody on Sunday (04Nov07) following the incident in the parking lot of The Hippodrome, where Songz had performed the previous evening (03Nov07). The shoot-out left one man injured and he was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The alleged gunman, 29-year-old Anthony Williams, has been charged on multiple counts, including assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm without a licence and assault with intent to murder. Neverson, 22, was charged with behaving like a disorderly person and resisting arrest for his part in the crime, although it is unclear whether he is connected to either man. He was released after posting $500 (GBP250) bond. According to Lieutenant John Slepchuck of the Springfield Police Department, cops were present when shots were fired behind the venue in the early hours of Sunday morning. He tells AllHipHop.com, "Our disorderly person charge can involve several different things including the use of certain language, failure to do what an officer asks. "(Neverson) was interfering with an active crime scene involving a victim."
