Trayvone Lil Darus Stevenson, a 28-year-old barber from Houston, appeared in court on Monday after being accused of impersonating a public servant to sneak into Friday’s Final Four Fan Fest concert. Stevenson allegedly wore a “Police K-9” vest and claimed to be a police officer to gain access to the sold-out Megan Thee Stallion performance at Discovery Green. Despite having no qualifications as an officer and not having a dog with him, he attempted to pass himself off as an officer working security.
Stevenson was held in Harris County Jail over the weekend, but on Monday, a judge granted him a $20,000 bond. Court records show that he posted bond after his hearing. Although Stevenson has no previous record, he still faces felony charges.
Prosecutor Mathew Jackson emphasized the seriousness of the case, stating that impersonating an officer to gain access to a concert venue is a felony offense. Megan Thee Stallion is a huge draw, especially in Houston, but the consequences of trying to sneak into her concert by impersonating an officer are severe.
“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 told Eyewitness News at Monday’s hearing.
