UPDATE → Statement released by Big Sean's lawyer, Scott E. Leemon defending his client's innocence:
“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.
