Sean Anderson, better known to most as rapper Big Sean, was arrested last night at Artpark State Park, where he was performing with Wiz Khalifa. At around 9:50 p.m., police got a complaint from a woman claiming that she was sexually assaulted at the concert.
Authorities declined to disclose any details on the event, but the charges on Big Sean and another man, Willie Hansbro, included misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse. Both men were released on $500 bail and are scheduled to appear in court next month.
At this point, no comments have been made by Sean or anyone representing him.
UPDATE via RR: Statement by lawyer, Scott E. Leemon:
Last night, recording artists, Sean “Big Sean” Anderson and Willie “Sayitainttone” Hansbro were arrested and then immediately released by the NY State Police in connection with an allegation made by a female who was at their concert in Lewiston, New York. Both men were charged with misdemeanors and they both vehemently deny the allegations. I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated.
