Country singer Morgan Wallen was arrested in Nashville last night after reportedly tossing a chair off of a rooftop bar.

Singer Morgan Wallen arrested again

Wallen, 30, allegedly threw a chair from a sixth floor rooftop while he was partying at the grand opening weekend of fellow country star Eric Church’s Chiefs Bar at around 10:45 pm on Sunday night.

The piece of furniture he flung thankfully didn’t hurt any bystanders, though it nearly took out two cops on the street level, when it landed three feet away from them.

It’s unclear of the “Wasted On You” singer was specifically targeting the police officers, or just in fact wasted and unaware of the potential consequences of his actions.

Witnesses reported that Wallen was laughing after he threw the chair off of the building, but didn’t look so jovial as he was being taken into custody by police at around 12:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

According to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, in addition to witness accounts, the singer was caught on video footage “lunging and throwing an object over the roof.”

He was charged with three counts of felony reckless endangerment and one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

The country crooner seemed unbothered by seriousness of the charges as he grinned at the camera during his mugshot.

He made posted $15,250 bond early Monday morning, and was released from Davidson County jail at around 3:30 a.m.

Wallen was seen leaving the jail while being shielded from paparazzi with umbrellas as he walked to a car.

His court date is set for May 3, which conveniently timed during the Nashville leg of his “One Night at a Time” tour, which is scheduled from May 2 to May 4 at Nissan Stadium.

If convicted, he faces anywhere from a year to 15 years in prison.

Wallen’s arrest isn’t his first encounter with the law for bad behavior while intoxicated.

According to the New York Post, the “Man Made a Bar” singer was charged with a DUI in 2016, which was later dismissed.

He was kicked out of Kid Rock’s Big Honky Tonk and Steakhouse in May of 2020, and was arrested for intoxication and disorderly conduct  outside of the establishment.

He apologized for how he acted during the incident on X, formerly Twitter.

“Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air. I went out downtown last night with a few old friends. After a couple bar stops, we were horse-playing with each other,” he posted.

“We didn’t mean any harm, and we want to say sorry to any bar staff or anyone that was affected.”

“Thank you to the local authorities for being so professional and doing their job with class,” he said lauding law enforcement. “Love y’all.”
