Surveillance footage reportedly captured the moment country music star Morgan Wallen allegedly threw a chair from the roof of a Nashville bar Sunday night, narrowly missing a police officer on the ground.

The blurry clip, obtained by TMZ, shows an unidentified object flying off the edge of the roof of Chief Bar and rapidly falling to the ground below on a busy city street.

Wallen, 30, was arrested for allegedly tossing a chair over the edge of the sixth-floor terrace of fellow country singer Erich Church’s Broadway Bar just after 10:45 p.m.

The seat fell to the ground just three feet from Metropolitan Nashville Police officers, the police department said.

Wallen flashed a cheeky smile in his mugshot, which was released by police.

His bond was set at $15,250 — which he posted — and he was released about 3:30 p.m.

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

Bar-goers who witnessed the chair throw and arrest claimed the “Somebody’s Problem” hitmaker laughed after the incident.

The alleged reckless behavior isn’t the first time Wallen has found himself in the back of a police cruiser after a night out in Nashville.

He was arrested in May 2020 on drunk and disorderly conduct charges after being kicked out of Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk Bar in downtown Nashville. He later apologized for his behavior on X.

The country singer, known for hit songs like “Whiskey Glasses” and “Last Night,” was also charged with DUI in 2016 but the case was dismissed.

He also remained in the news for all the wrong reasons in February 2021, when he was heard using the N-word in a video recorded by his Nashville neighbors and obtained by TMZ.

He apologized for using the racist slur and claimed he was “on the 72nd hour of a 72-hour bender” when he uttered the word.

“There is no excuse. I never made any excuses. I’ll never make any excuses,” Wallen, 30, told Billboard .

Wallen’s next court date is set for May 3, according to Davidson County Criminal Court.

The Post has contacted Wallen’s representatives for comment.
