Yikes! According to TMZ, ’90s singer Russell Neal from Hi-Five is in police custody … after he allegedly told cops his wife was dead inside their apartment … and he needed a lawyer!

Neal went to the local jail and reportedly told Houston cops he and his wife had gotten into an argument Wednesday … the singer reportedly asked for a lawyer and then clammed up! Wow!

Neal is currently being detained … no charges have been filed.

The lawyer for Hi-Five, Chris Brown, tells TMZ, (And no….the irony of the attorney’s name is not lost on us!)

“We are aware of the situation and are presently evaluating it.”

The group’s lead singer Tony Thompson passed away in 2007 and the group has recently been making moves to come back into the spotlight.

Hi-Five’s song “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)” is still a summer BBQ staple! We are shocked and saddened to hear all of this!

And our thoughts and condolences go out to the family and loved ones of Mrs. Neal.
