R&B singer T-Pain and members of his crew was arrested Saturday night during the annual Radio One Springfest concert in Miami after he allegedly refused requests from police officers at Bayfront Amphitheater to cut his set short. T-Pain, born Faheem Najm, was the closing act on a bill that included Trey Songz, Mims, Jim Jones, Rick Ross, Yung Joc, Rich Boy and others. A witness tells BallerStatus.com that T-Pain got irate when officials called for him to finish his set early. He is accused of making “obscene gestures” at the cops. A source says, “The whole backstage area was blanketed by 20-plus police trying to cut the sound off to stop the show.” Meanwhile, T-Pain continued to ignore requests to stop his show, and was in the midst of his hit single “Buy U A Drank” when his music was finally cut off. According to the source, he âtossed his mic and became furious, jumping up and down, while throwing middle fingers at the police and screaming âf*** you.ââ The Tallahassee-born artist was arrested, and police are deciding whether or not to press charges against the star.
