Local music star Morgan Wallen has been arrested in Nashville, Tennessee, accused of throwing a chair from a rooftop bar on Sunday night, according to local reports.

Court documents show Wallen, 30, has been charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct. The incident came just days after Wallen kicked off his One Night at a Time 2024 Tour with two shows in Indianapolis.

Wallen’s attorney Warrick Robinson told WKRN, “At 10:53 p.m. Sunday, Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

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

Employees at the venue told police that Wallen had thrown a chair from the sixth floor, WTVF reported, citing police documents.

The arrest report also says police saw video of Wallen “jumping onto the roof and throwing an object,” according to WTVF.

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