This ain’t no f*ckin’ sing-a-long…
The Weeknd was arrested this past weekend in Las Vegas after allegedly assaulting a police officer.
According to TMZ, Abel aka The Weeknd was involved in a fight Saturday night at Cromwell Hotel around 4:20 am. When cops showed up and stepped in to break up the fight, 24-year-old Abel punched the police officer that broke things up in the head twice.
The Weeknd was in Vegas to perform at Drai’s Nightclub.
After being arrested and taken to jail for battery of a protected person, he was later released on $2,000 bail. Chump change to an artist of Abel‘s caliber.
Abel posted an image to Instagram with the caption “escaped from Las Vegas,” after the events took place.
