Apparently making it rain can get you in trouble. Trey Songz learned this the hard way, at his own album release party, TMZ reports.

The r'n'b singer threw dollar bills at a woman and was arrested for assault in NYC. The incident occurred at his album release party on August 21st, at a gentlemen's club in Queens. According to the police, somewhere between 4:00 and 4:15 AM Trey was involved in an altercation outside of the venue.

The incident was described by the cops in a criminal complaint as follows, "Tremaine Neverson, did throw a sum of United States currency at the complainant and said sum of United States currency struck the complainant's left eye causing substantial pain to her left eye."

It is unclear who the woman was in the incident, and if she was a stripper. 

Trey was not arrested that night, rather a month later for a misdemeanour assault. Unbeknownst to many, Trey had a court date in NYC on November 1st, and an order of protection was issued. He's now due back in court in February.
