Country Singer Morgan Wallen Arrested on Felony Charges in Nashville

In a shocking turn of events, country singer Morgan Wallen was taken into custody on serious felony charges Sunday night, as confirmed by local police records. The 30-year-old was arrested after allegedly throwing a chair off the roof of Chiefs Bar in downtown Nashville. The incident reportedly occurred at around 10:53 PM when the chair plummeted to the ground, narrowly missing the police officers standing in front of the establishment.

According to WKRN, witnesses claimed they saw Wallen “pick up the chair, throw it over him, laughing afterward.” The “Last Night” singer now faces three counts of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. Wallen was consequently booked at Metro Jail early Monday morning and later released. The acclaimed singer’s attorney has issued a brief statement acknowledging the incident.

This arrest arrives during Wallen’s highly successful “One Night at a Time Tour 2024,” which began at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on April 4. The singer recently made headlines with his light-hearted remarks about superstar Taylor Swift during that same concert. Wallen humorously bragged about his concert’s attendance records, quipping, “I’m going to say that until Taylor Swift comes to town in the fall.” The joke was met with a mixed response from the audience, garnering both laughter and boos.

Following the immense success of his 2023 tour, Wallen extended his planned performances to include multiple stops throughout the United States in 2024. In a statement last September, he expressed gratitude to his fans, saying, “Thank y’all for an insanely fun and fulfilling 2023 tour.” Alongside Wallen, the tour boasts a lineup of various prominent country stars, such as Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Bailey Zimmerman, Jon Pardi, Nate Smith, Bryan Martin, Lauren Watkins, and Ella Langley, serving as opening acts.

Despite this recent setback, the singer’s next scheduled performance remains slated for April 20 in Oxford, Mississippi. While it remains unclear how this arrest will impact Wallen’s career moving forward, fans and critics alike are undoubtedly watching closely to see how the situation unfolds.

In conclusion, country music sensation Morgan Wallen’s arrest on serious felony charges has taken the industry by surprise. As he faces possible legal repercussions, fans are left to wonder how this development may influence his highly successful “One Night at a Time Tour 2024.” For now, the tour’s scheduled events remain unchanged, but the reverberations of this incident will undoubtedly be felt in the days and weeks to come.
