Trey Songz

Arrested for Assaulting

a Woman with $$$

EXCLUSIVE

1215_Trey-Songz_gettyThrowing dollar bills at a woman (aka MAKING IT RAIN!!!) seems harmless, but it got Trey Songz arrested for assault in New York recently ... TMZ has learned.

Songz (real name Tremaine Neverson) had an album release party on August 21 at a gentleman's club in Queens. According to police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM on the 22nd, Trey became involved in an altercation inside the club.

Cops described the incident this way in the criminal complaint: "Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant's left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye."

It is unclear if the woman in question was ... how do we say this nicely ... a stripper.

Songz was not arrested that night, but rather a month later for misdemeanor assault. Songz had a court date in NY on November 1 and an order of protection was issued. He is due back in court in February.

We reached out to a rep for Songz, but have yet to hear back.

...this story moves the word ridiculous to a strata level and that the courts even dignified it is another statement and that she was granted a protection order is out of this world. That bitch played the vagina card for all it was worth---AND IT WORKED---as it typically does, especially with WAM (Women Against Men) judges. I know the bitch isn't going to rest until she scores some money from TREMAINE. But I hope he tells her that she has gotten all the money from him that she's going to get. LOL

Had a male filed the same complaint the cops and the courts would have thought the who this to be ludicrous. But that bitch played the vagina card---and---CRASH, POW... an "ASSAULT". I'm frankly surprised that the NYC courts is even wasting their time on this. She probably got a Jewish attorney. The tribe controls that town... and it shows.

Its obvious the only reason this nutjob lady pressed charges is cuz she is planning on suing...people who are law-suit happy make me sick and I hope judges can see these people for what they are - not victims but desperate for $. And regarding the ridiculous charges, how can the "victim" prove that the scratch to her eye wasnt from her accidently scratching herself with her nail or from something else, esp since she didnt press charges immediately...she picked up the $ off the ground first, then went home and figured out how to make the whole 10 mins she spent in Treys presence into a lawsuit...the b!tch didnt deserve whatever $ Trey threw at her...smh

Im sure she wasnt in that much "pain" to pick the $ up off the floor. And celebs put themselves in bad situations where they hang with lowlifes who are after their $. Just like LL, yes shes crazy and prob on drugs and we all know her behavior is unpredictable, but that gypsy lady pob provoked her so she could file a lawsuit later on. It will only be a matter of time til she files a lawsuit against LL. Technically she can win in civil court whether LL is convicted criminally or not, because it doesnt have to be proven beyond a reasobable doubt like in criminal court; civil court cases can be proven if its more than likely that the incident occured. And that lady had a blackeye to prove it. Same thing in Halle Berry case, John Tavolta case and Elmo case, and same thing here. These People are opportunists and celebs need to stay clear of people like this who seek out celebs for a payday.

Im disgusted that the cops actually arrested Trey for this, and a month later on top of that. She could have went home, scratched herself in her eye, paid a cpl people to be witnesses, and then called the cops. Do NYC police really have enough time on their hands to take complaints and make arrests for throwing $ at a stripper??? Smh
