Barber Dressed Like K-9 Officer To Meet Megan Thee Stallion, Court Records Show
He was arrested around 8 p.m., just before Megan took the stage.
The 28-year-old was held in the Harris County Jail over the weekend after being charged with impersonating a public servant.
Attorneys claim Stevenson, who is a barber in Houston, has no qualifications as any type of law enforcement officer and did not have a dog with him despite wearing a “Police K-9” vest.
On Monday, the judge granted Stevenson a $15,000 bond, KHOU reports. Stevenson, who has no previous record, bonded out after his hearing, per court records.
Stevenson’s Arrest Is “A Felony Case” Prosecutor Says At Monday’s Hearing
Prosecutor Mathew Jackson told Eyewitness News that “this is still a felony case” at Monday’s hearing.
“Megan Thee Stallion is a fantastic draw, big draw, especially here in Houston, but this is still a felony case. You cannot go and impersonate an officer to get into a concert venue,” prosecutor Mathew Jackson said.
The Final Four music festival is a free event with registration during the NCAA men’s Final Four weekend, according to KPRC.
The festival featured Megan Thee Stallion on Friday and Lil Nas X on Saturday. Tim McGraw and Keith Urban are set to headline the festival Sunday.
