Country music superstar Morgan Wallen is no stranger to trouble.

But Wallen’s found himself in an embarrassing predicament.

And when Morgan Wallen got arrested it left him with no choice but to do one thing.

Wallen apologizes following Nashville arrest

Morgan Wallen’s in the middle of his highly anticipated “One Night at a Time” tour.

Other than Taylor Swift’s record setting “Eras” tour, “One Night at a Time” is the most anticipated act of 2024.

But Wallen jeopardized all of that goodwill following his arrest at a Nashville bar where he allegedly threw a chair off the roof of fellow country music star Eric Church’s honky tonk, Chief’s Bar, that nearly hit police officers on the sidewalk below.

Ahead of his May 3 court date, Wallen issued an apology posted to his X account.

“I didn’t feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks,” Wallen wrote. “I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s. I’m not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility.”

Wallen expressed horror that his actions put officers’ safety in danger and assured fans that this legal issue – the May 3 court date coincides with Wallen’s concert dates at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium – wouldn’t affect his tour.

“I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change,” Wallen added.

Police report of the incident and Wallen’s lawyer’s response

“According to an arrest report for the 30-year-old singer, some Metro Nashville police officers were standing in front of Chief’s Bar on Broadway Sunday night when a chair fell from above them, hitting the ground just feet from where they were standing,” Nashville News Channel 5 reported of Wallen’s actions.

“Staff members of Chief’s told those officers that Wallen was responsible for throwing the chair from the sixth story of the business, according to the arrest report,” the Nashville News Channel 5 report continued.

Wallen’s attorney Worrick G. Robinson released a statement confirming that police arrested Wallen and nothing else.

“At 10:53 p.m. Sunday evening, Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct,” Robinson’s statement read. “He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

The “Last Night,” “Whiskey Glasses,” and “Wasted on You” star went further and admitted wrongdoing and sought forgiveness from his legions of fans.

This isn’t Wallen’s first incident involving alcohol.

Wallen checked into rehab after blaming a 72-hour bender on causing him to get caught on video shouting the N-word and other slurs at his friends.

Radio stations stopped playing his music, his record label suspended him, and he got banned from that year’s Billboard Music Awards.

Wallen avoided cancellation once.

And Wallen hopes that a quick apology will keep him out of the target zone of the outrage mob.
