"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."
Big Sean is facing charges in upstate New York after a woman complained that she was sexually assaulted during a concert.
State Park Police charged the 23-year-old Detroit man, whose full name is Sean Anderson, with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse. A second Detroit man, Willie Hansbro, faces the same charges.
Police got the complaint about 9:50 p.m. Thursday at Artpark State Park, where Anderson was performing with Wiz Khalifa.
Authorities refused to detail what happened.
Both men were issued appearance tickets and released on $500 bail. They're scheduled in Niagara County Court in the town of Lewiston on Sept. 6.
Neither Anderson's press person nor record company responded to requests for comment Friday. A phone listing for Hansbro wasn't available.
