In a two-part response, the country superstar tweeted, “I didn’t feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks. I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s. I’m not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility…. I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change. -MW”

Wallen was arrested and briefly jailed on April 8 after allegedly throwing the chair off the sixth-floor roof of Eric Church’s newly opened bar Chief’s, located on Nashville’s Lower Broadway. According to reports, the chair landed just feet away from two Metro Nashville police officers. Wallen was arrested and booked just after midnight and charged with three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, posting a $15,250 bond to secure his release around 3:30 a.m. 

Wallen’s attorney, Worrick Robinson of Worrick Robinson Law, confirming the arrest, told Billboard in a statement,  “At 10:53p Sunday evening Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities.” 

The incident came just days after Wallen, 30, kicked off his 2024 One Night at a Time tour. The tour resumes Saturday night (April 20), at Oxford, Mississippi’s Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The singer’s next court date in the incident is May 3; he is slated to play Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on May 2nd and 3rd.

Chief’s official Instagram account responded April 9, sharing a photo of a new sign outside the nightclub that read: “Our pigs fly, our chairs don’t.”
