Seems like The Weeknd had one hell of a weekend in Vegas. Apparently, the singer was arrested for assaulting a cop after they attempted to break up a fight involving a singer at The Cromwell Hotel .

TMZ reports the fight broke out early Sunday morning:

“Law enforcement sources tell us a fight allegedly involving Weeknd started inside the Cromwell Hotel around 4:20 AM … and when they arrived, the fight was still raging.

We’re told cops attempted to break up the fight, and one of them pulled the singer into an elevator during the scuffle. That’s when Weeknd allegedly punched him in the head.” (TMZ)

Looks like The Weeknd managed to make bail and escape Sin City according to this instagram post:
