Morgan Wallen Breaks His Silence Following Nashville Arrest

Morgan Wallen Breaks His Silence Following Nashville Arrest

Morgan Wallen has broken his silence and released a statement following his April 7 arrest in downtown Nashville.

In a post to social media on April 19, Wallen tells fans that his statement took so long because he had to make “amends with some folks.” He also says he’s not proud of his behavior.

Wallen was arrested on three felony charges after an incident at the newly opened Chief’s — Eric Church’s bar and honky-tonk — as the 2024 CMT Awards were ending in Austin, Texas.

WTVF-TV in Nashville was first to share news of Wallen’s arrest. News Channel 5 reported that Wallen was accused of throwing a chair from the sixth floor of Chief’s. Several police officers were standing in front of the business at the time and the chair landed just feet from where they were standing.

Per a police report gathered by the news station, staff at Chief’s told MNPD that it was Wallen who threw the chair. Police also reportedly viewed video of the incident, and witnesses said the 30-year-old laughed afterward.

The charges for Wallen include three counts of reckless endangerment, one for each officer and one for the general public in the area. He was also charged with disorderly conduct.

Wallen’s bond was set at $15,520. WSMV in Nashville reports that Wallen was released around 3:30AM April 8.

Wallen is between dates on his One Night at a Time Tour.
