Country music star Morgan Wallen was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee after allegedly throwing a chair off a rooftop bar the night, Fox News Digital can confirm.

Court documents show Wallen, 30, has been charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct. The incident happened just days after Wallen began his One Night At A Time 2024 tour with a pair of shows in Indianapolis.

“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,” Wallen’s attorney Worrick Robinson told Fox News Digital.

The singer was booked for the arrest at 12:36 am, then was released at 3:29am. His bond was listed at $15,250.

Wallen’s mugshot for the arrest was shared by the Metro Nashville Police Department on X, formerly Twitter. In the photo, the singer can be seen giving a wide smile.

Along with the mugshot, they shared, “Country artist Morgan Wallen, 30, was booked early today on 3 cts of felony reckless endangerment and 1 ct of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for throwing a chair from the rooftop of Chief’s Bar Sun night. The chair landed on Broadway, close to 2 MNPD officers. His bond: $15,250.”

An arrest report said some Nashville police officers were standing in front of Chief’s Bar on Broadway on Sunday night when a chair fell from above, landing just feet away from them, according to WTVF. The Eric Church-backed bar just opened its doors for the first time on Friday, April 5.

Staff at the venue then told police that Wallen had tossed the chair from the sixth floor, WTVF reported, citing the police document. Before he was arrested, Wallen was seen with police on the street in a photograph obtained by TMZ.

The arrest report also stated that police viewed video showing Wallen “lunging and throwing an object over the roof,” according to WTVF.

Court documents show Wallen’s first court appearance has been set for the morning of May 3. Later that night, he has a scheduled concert at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
