SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts (AP) — Police say a singer known for his 1990 chart-topping love song was hauled off a Massachusetts stage and arrested on charges of owing $420,000 in unpaid child support.
Steven Bernard Hill of Las Vegas was arrested Friday night at the MassMutual Center, where he was performing on tour.
Hill performs as Stevie B and is best known for the song “Because I Love You (The Postman Song).” It reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in late 1990.
Springfield police Sgt. John M. Delaney tells the Springfield Republican that Hill was surprised by the arrest and concerned that he might miss a weekend show in Providence, Rhode Island.
Hill is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. He couldn’t be reached for comment Sunday. Police didn’t know if he had an attorney.
