Morgan Wallen isn’t just one of the biggest acts in country music, he’s one of the biggest stars in any genre.

But his fans got some bad news.

And that’s because Morgan Wallen got arrested for one reason that you won’t believe.

Morgan Wallen arrested for throwing a chair off a rooftop bar

Police arrested country superstar Morgan Wallen after an incident at fellow country music singer Eric Church’s new honkey tonk bar in Nashville where he allegedly threw a chair off the roof of the bar around 10:45 PM on Saturday, April 6.

“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.

“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 report continued.

“Officers were able to view video which showed Wallen ‘lunging and throwing an object over the roof,’ his arrest report said. Witnesses told officers Wallen laughed afterward.” The report concluded.

Nashville police arrested Wallen on three counts of reckless endangerment over the chair landing near two officers as well as the general public.

A judge set bond at $15,250.

His court date is set for May 3rd which lines up with the May 2nd and 3rd concert dates at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.

Wallen’s lawyer Worrick Robinson released a statement that read “At 10:53pm Sunday evening Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

Not Wallen’s first run-in with trouble 

Wallen’s won 14 fourteen Billboard Music Awards for hits like “Wasted on You” and “Last Night.”

But his career almost imploded in 2021 when TMZ posted a video of him and his friends pulling up to his Tennessee home where he then shouted a racial slur.

Radio stations pulled all of his music off the air and his record label suspended him.

He issued several apologies and took ownership for his actions.

“There’s no excuse. I’ve never made an excuse. I never will make an excuse,” Wallen said in an interview with Billboard. “I’ve talked to a lot of people, heard stories [about] things that I would have never thought about because I wasn’t the one going through it. And I think, for me, in my heart I was never that guy that people were portraying me to be, so there was a little bit of like, ‘Damn, I’m kind of actually mad about this a little bit because I know I shouldn’t have said this, but I’m really not that guy.’ I put myself in just such a s**t spot, you know? Like, ‘You really messed up here, guy.’ If I was that guy, then I wouldn’t have cared. I wouldn’t have apologized. I wouldn’t have done any of that if I really was that guy that people were saying about me.”

This latest bruhaha seems relatively minor in nature and doesn’t pose anywhere near the threat to Wallen’s career that his previous dust-up did.
