Sean and another man Willie Hansbro were charged with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment, and sex abuse. They were later released on $500 bail but are scheduled to appear in Niagara County Court in Lewiston, New York, on September 6th.

Below is a statement from his lawyer:

“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,” said Scott E. Leemon. “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.”
