The Weeknd was arrested in Las Vegas this Saturday, after allegedly punching a cop.

The Weeknd just had a pretty crazy... umm... weekend in Las Vegas, as reports indicate the singer was arrested for striking a police officer on Saturday. 

According to TMZ, Abel was involved in a scuffle that broke out at Cromwell Hotel around 4:20 AM that morning. When police intervened, the singer was apparently pulled into an elevator by a cop, at which point he is said to have punched the officer in the head. After that, he was brought into custody for "battery of a protected person", though he's already out on bail. As of yesterday, he was on a plane out of the city, captioning his Instagram post of the plane with "escaped from Las Vegas".

Judging by his subsequent 'grams, the incident inspired him to get back in the studio, seemingly leaving all the drama back in Vegas where it belongs.
