Jeffre, 38, was booked for "criminal trespassing and prohibitive use of the squar," along with 10 other protesters at the Fountain Square demonstrations in Cincinnati over the weekend. "I spent the night in jail, and it was not fun," Jeffre revealed upon his release.
While it may have been 'The Hardest Thing' Justin's ever had to do, the singer said, "It was the place to be if you are standing up for free speech." The former boy band member admitted, "I didn't feel like singing in there," of his stay in the slammer.
Despite 98 Degrees not having dropped an album since 2002, Justin said that some of his cellmates recognized him from the glory days of four-part harmonies and synchronizes two-stepping for screaming teenage girls. "Everyone was very nice," he said.
Justin plead not guilty to the charges and asserted, "Nothing is more important that standing up for what you believe in."
