Morgan Wallen Arrested on Felony Charges

Morgan Wallen was arrested on three felony charges after an incident in downtown Nashville on Sunday night (April 7).

The singer was at the newly opened Chiefs — Eric Church’s bar and honky tonk — when he was arrested just before 11PM CT. His reps say he is fully cooperating with authorities.

Why Was Morgan Wallen Arrested?

WTVF-TV in Nashville was first to share news of Wallen’s arrest. News Channel 5 shares that Wallen is accused of throwing a chair from the sixth floor of Chiefs. Several police officers were standing in front of the business at the time and the chair landed just feet from where they were standing.

Per a police report gathered by the news station, staff at Chiefs told MNPD that it was Wallen who threw the chair. Police also reportedly viewed video of the incident as well and witnesses said the 30-year-old laughed afterward.

The charges for Wallen include three counts of reckless endangerment, one for each officer and one for the general public in the area. He was also charged with disorderly conduct.
