Singer Trey Songz was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge Monday morning, after turning himself in to police, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap.

Songz, whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, surrendered to police at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Monday. His bail was set at $50,000. It was not known whether the singer had bailed out as of this writing.

The LAPD spokesman said that the arrest stemmed from an alleged Feb. 18 incident at a party in Los Angeles. During the alleged incident, which occurred at approximately 2:40 a.m., Songz is accused of getting into an altercation with and striking the victim.

Police were unable to identify the victim. However, during a press conference last week, Andrea Buera elaborated on her allegation that Songz assaulted her during NBA All-Star weekend.

“I was attending an afterparty when Trey began yelling at me, choking at me … and ultimately knocked me to the ground,” Buera said. “While I was on the ground, he continued punching me and did not stop until his security guard pulled him off me.”

On Monday, Buera’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, said that her client is “ready, willing, and able to testify at trial.”

“Delighted that Trey Songz has been arrested for felony domestic assault against my client Andrea Buera,” Bloom wrote. “Andrea is ready, willing, and able to testify at trial. We urge any witnesses to contact LA police. Don’t be a bystander to domestic violence.”

Songz maintained his innocence via Twitter on Monday, writing that he is “being lied on.”

“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,” Songz tweeted. “I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain.”
