Country artist Morgan Wallen, aged 30, was arrested in downtown Nashville following an incident where he tossed a chair from the rooftop of a six-story bar.

It is alleged that the singer threw a chair from the rooftop of a six-story bar owned by fellow country music star Eric Church.

The incident took place at Chief’s Bar on Broadway.

According to witnesses, Wallen picked up a chair, threw it over the roof, and laughed about it. The chair landed dangerously close to two police officers, about 3 feet away.

Consequently, Wallen found himself detained early Monday, facing three felony charges of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

His attorney, Worrick Robinson, confirmed the arrest and assured that Wallen is cooperating fully with authorities. Wallen has been released from custody, with a court date set for May 3.

This isn’t Wallen’s first brush with controversy. In 2021, he faced suspension from his label and removal of his music from various platforms after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur. In 2020, he was arrested on public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges after an incident at Kid Rock’s bar in downtown Nashville.

Despite these controversies, Wallen’s music career has seen success, with his third studio album, “One Thing at a Time,” being the most-consumed album in the U.S. last year. He has also received several major awards show nominations and embarked on a sold-out tour in 2024.

Wallen’s court date coincides with scheduled performances at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on May 2 and 3. The singer’s legal troubles and controversies continue to make headlines, adding to his history of legal issues.
