(CBS) Adam Lambert took to Twitter late Thursday night to clear up reports about his arrest in Finland.

"Violence is not to be taken lightly," he wrote. "Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates."

The media were all over the Lambert story on Thursday. The Hollywood Reporter and TMZ were among the first to cite local reports out of Finland.

It all started when authorities were called after Lambert and his boyfriend, Finnish reality star Sauli Koskinen, reportedly got into a fight outside a bar in Helsinki. They were interrogated and released on Thursday afternoon. Some reports claimed Lambert even got physical with people trying to break up the fight.

Koskinen, winner of the Finland's "Big Brother" TV show, also blogged about the situation -- in Finnish -- on his website.

According to Google translation, he wrote, "Publicity is not easy. But celebrities are only human people. Love is not easy but it is forever!"

The "American Idol" alum landed in Finland on Monday to celebrate the holidays with Koskinen.
