Morgan Wallen Arrested On Felony Charges

Country singer Morgan Wallen’s latest brush with the law occurred in downtown Nashville, where he was arrested on felony charges after an incident at Eric Church’s newly opened Broadway bar, Chief’s. The arrest took place early on Monday morning (April 8) following an altercation involving a falling chair near two Metro Nashville police officers stationed outside the bar. Witnesses claimed Wallen was responsible for the chair’s descent.

According to reports made by authorities, the chair landed approximately three feet away from two officers. Authorities reviewed the video footage of the incident, which showed Wallen hurling an object over the roof.

As a result, Wallen was taken into custody and charged with three felony counts of reckless endangerment, concerning both the officers and public safety, as well as disorderly conduct. He was booked into Metro Jail and released later that day.

Morgan Wallen’s Attorney Speaks Out

In a statement released on Monday morning, Wallen’s attorney, Worrick Robinson of Worrick Robinson Law, addressed the incident, stating, “At 10:53 p.m. Sunday evening, Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

This isn’t Wallen’s first encounter with legal issues. In May 2020, he was arrested on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct following an incident at Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk on Lower Broadway.

Wallen is scheduled to appear in court on May 3rd, coinciding with his planned concerts at Nissan Stadium in Nashville on May 2nd and 3rd.

As the story continues to develop, Wallen has yet to make a public statement about his arrest.
