According to TMZ, the 36-year-old was apprehended for trespassing and resisting arrest in an altercation with an officer during an American football game between Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Although the singer’s team is yet to address the controversy, it is understood that Songz is on a 24-hour hold.

A video obtained from Arrowhead Stadium, where the scuffle happened, shows Songz and the officer in a struggle.

The singer throws a punch at the officer’s head and gets him in a headlock while the latter pins Songz to a seat.

A witness who was at the stadium during the game was quoted as saying that the officer was out of line.

In the video, fans could be heard shouting at the officer, telling him to get off Songz until additional officers arrived.
