Hi-Five singer Russell Neal is in police custody after his wife was found dead in their home.
Neal went to the local jail and apparently told Houston cops he and his wife had gotten into an argument Wednesday … the singer reportedly asked for a lawyer and then clammed up.
Hi-Five’s song “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)” went to number one in 1991 … and a year later they scored another hit with, “She’s Playing Hard to Get.”
The group’s lead singer Tony Thompson famously died in 2007 after inhaling Freon.
Neal is currently being detained … no charges have been filed.
The lawyer for Hi-Five, Chris Brown, tells TMZ, “We are aware of the situation and are presently evaluating it.”
Yes, Neal’s lawyer’s name really is Chris Brown.
