Trey Songz has been arrested on suspicion of punching a woman at a party in Los Angeles. The incident took place last month.
On Monday, the singer turned himself in for questioning. After spending two hours at the Hollywood police station, the authorities released Songz on a $50,000 bail.
"I was attending an after-party when Trey began yelling at me, choking me, punching me and ultimately he knocked me to the ground. While I was on the ground, he continued punching me. And he did not stop until his security guard pulled him off of me," said Buera.
The 27-year-old woman also shared photos of her bruises from last month's altercation. One of the marks is seen on her back. Following the incident, Buera obtained a restraining order against Songz. Her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said that Songz is already on probation in Michigan for punching a police officer.

Initially, Songz denied Buera's allegations, and he said that he was being falsely accused for someone else's personal gain. In his tweet, Songz also said that he will no longer comment on the incident, but he thanked his fans for their love and support.
"For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me..." wrote Songz.
Songz's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, accompanied him to the precinct on Monday. When asked to comment on the incident, Holley said that his client's tweets already summed everything up.
