Well who knew soft-spoken OVO artist, The Weeknd could do something so harsh like punch a cop?
According to TMZ this past weekend, Toronto native The Weeknd was arrested for allegedly punching a cop in Las Vegas after a fight broke out. Reportedly, the singer was involved in a fight at Cromwell Hotel a little after 4 a.m. early Saturday morning. When police attempted to break up the scuffle, The Weeknd was pulled into an elevator by a police officer and at that point the star punched him in the head.
After the elevator incident, he was taken into custody and charged with “battery of a protected person”. He’s currently out on bail and according to Instagram, out of Vegas.
When will people learn that you can’t beat the police? Literally.
