Trey Songz appeared to throw the first punch and was approached three times allegedly about not wearing a mask at the AFC Championship game in Kansas City just before he was arrested on January 24, 2021.
Over a week later, the rapper was seen partying maskless with fellow attendees – and not abiding by the social distancing protocols in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Governor Steve Sisolak’s has implemented several directives in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 including no large gatherings and no private social gatherings more than 10 people as well as a mask policy for residents and visitors to be followed at all times.

In October 2020, Trey revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19 and at the time said he was taking it ‘seriously,’ per Billboard.
He had also said: ‘I’ve always taken it serious, and if you come into contact with COVID, please do the same,’ with a caption encouraging his fans and followers to wash their hands and wear masks.
He also mentioned that he believes his grandfather died with what he believes was COVID-19.
It is interesting to note that Trey and the fellow attendees choosing to party maskless and with no social distancing comes just hours after it was revealed that January was the deadliest month for the state of Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The outlet, which published the statistics on Monday, February 1, reported that the statewide death toll for January in Nevada was 1,132, more than a quarter of the total deaths in the state since the pandemic started.
A total of 4,278 people have died since March due to COVID-19.
The January total came after December yielded 982 deaths related to the virus.
The newspaper reported that there were 838 new COVID-19 cases already and that the state continues a downward trend in positivity rate compared to the following Monday.
Nevada Governor Sisolak’s 30-day mitigation measure continues in the state, with the Nevadans and visitors all required to wear masks at all times inside and outside when around people who aren’t part of their household, per the official government website.
In addition restaurants and bars can operate at a 25% occupancy rate with social distancing between tables and no more than four people per table.

Another one of the rules noted on the site include: ‘No large gathering plans with be approved at this time. If larger events were previously approved to take place in the next three weeks, they must be canceled.’
In addition: ‘Private social gatherings will be restricted to 10 people or fewer from no more than two households, whether it’s indoors or outdoors.’
Public gatherings are capped at 50 people, or 25% of fire code capacity for casino showrooms, funerals, weddings, live theater performances, places of worship, indoor movie theaters, milestone celebrations or anything else that brings members of the public together for the same purpose in the same place and at the same time.
On January 24, Trey was arrested by Kansas City Police and reportedly charged with two misdemeanors and a felony, assaulting a police officer.
He appeared to throw the first punch and was approached three times about allegedly not wearing wearing a mask just before his arrest in a new video released by the Kansas City Police.
The Missouri law enforcement agency posted the footage, which seemed to be from a security camera at Arrowhead Stadium, showing Trey – real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson – and a group of friends in the stands.
The video – which is from the AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills – points out Trey in the same black hoodie and hat that other footage of the incident has shown.

Stadium security approached he and the group three different times – including the first time where one appeared to be flashing a mask gesture to the group – before a KCPD officer was called in to intervene.
The law enforcement official has a conversation with the singer for over a minute before walking into the row to try to escort him out of the stadium.
Trey backed away from the officer in the row before seemingly swinging a fist and shoving the police officer.

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Songz who have so far been unavailable for comment.
Moments prior to the altercation, Trey was seen lowering his mask to ‘chow down on a cup of french fries,’ as per footage obtained by TMZ.
Although masks are required for attendance, Arrowhead Stadium ‘does allow an exemption for eating and drinking’ inside the stadium.
The outlet was informed that the video of Trey snacking on his french fries was taken ‘about 10-15 minutes before the KCPD officer came over.’
A Kansas City Police Department officer was then called to intervene

According to the Kansas City Police, Trey was not following the rules of the stadium and would not listen to a request from both a guard and then a policeman to wear a mask.
The video, which was shot from several rows behind where Songz was seated, shows him sitting in his chair as a police officer stands in the row in front of him.
As the officer is grappling with Songz, the singer seems to connect a punch with the officer’s head.
People in the crowd are heard shouting while one man says, ‘Trey what are you doing?’ per TMZ.

Another man standing to Songz’s right, who appears to be part of the venue’s security staff, also leans down to try to subdue Songz.
TMZ’s footage also pointed out that ‘a couple other fans watching the fight’ between Songz and the officer did not have their masks over their face.
The Say Aah did not seem too bothered about the incident as he took to Instagram to share a gallery of photos and videos from the trip including from inside of a private jet. He jokingly captioned it: ‘Chiefs game was lit right?!’
One interesting thing was that Trey did have a mask on in one of the snaps that he took next to a security guard posted in the gallery.

According to a source in law enforcement, Songz was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors, resisting arrest and trespassing, and a felony, assaulting a police officer.
The Can’t Help But Wait singer was reportedly on a 24-hour hold in jail, TMZ reported.
Earlier in the day, Songz had posted on Instagram as he flew on a private jet to the high-profile game, which helped determine the team who would compete in the Super Bowl.
He also shared video of the game, which saw the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Buffalo Bills 38 to 24.
