This is definitely a crazy start to 2015 for The Weeknd.

According to TMZ, the “Love Me Harder” singer has been arrested in Las Vegas after he was accused of allegedly punching a cop.

The Weeknd was reportedly involved in a fight that broke out in the Cromwell Hotel, and it was still going down once cops got to the scene.

The site reports that one of the officers brought The Weeknd into an elevator after trying to break up the fight, which is when he allegedly punched him in the head.

He has been charged with battery of a protected person, but has since been released.

He even posted a photo to his Instagram after it all went down, writing the caption, “escaped from Las Vegas” as he was boarding a private jet.

Hopefully this incident can be straightened out, and The Weeknd can get back to the music.
