Adam Lambert, who was arrested and jailed along with his reality TV star boyfriend Sauli Koskinen following a drunken brawl outside a Helsinki, Finland, bar, has blamed the media for exaggerating the episode.

The pair were released hours later.

"Violence is not to be taken lightly. Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates," the 29-year-old American singer tweeted.

The pair were reportedly turned out of the bar after they started fighting. The brawl continued in the street until bystanders intervened.

"Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it," he tweeted earlier.

The pair have been dating for more than a year now.
