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.

Wow. Just wow. Any object that hits you in the eye can cause serious damage, including scratches to the retina or cornea that can cause blindness. For you strippers posting here, you should be telling the owners to enforce rules against anything hitting you in the face, ESP. Near your eyes. Theres no resson patrons can't be satisfied with making it rain below neck level. We haven't established that the victim is in fact a stripper or that she was stripping while he was making it rain (thats just tmz's eye catching tag)when this happened. All the article says is there was a fight, and in a dick move, he threw money at her face, hitting her in the eye. These are criminal charges. There's no payday in a criminal suit, where the victim is just a witness who isn't entitled to monetary damages; only the state benefits from the penalties (jail time,fines, the satisfaction of knowing their laws were enforced). Therefore, o doubt the victim is a "thirsty bitch".
