The Weeknd was arrested this past Saturday (Jan. 10) after reportedly punching a police officer. TMZ was informed by law enforcement sources that a fight broke out around 4:20 a.m. at the Cromwell Hotel, allegedly involving The Weeknd. Police officers attempted to break up the fight, with one having pulled The Weeknd into an elevator during the brawl. It was at this point that the "Love Me Harder" singer allegedly punched the officer in the head.

Post bail, the Toronto native posted a pic of himself on his Instagram boarding a private jet with "escape from Las Vegas" as the caption. We'll update the story if it develops further. Sips tea.
