Country music star Morgan Wallen found himself in legal trouble following an incident at a Nashville rooftop bar, where he was arrested late Sunday evening, April 7th, for reportedly throwing a chair from the establishment's sixth floor. The 30-year-old singer, who recently concluded his "ONE NIGHT AT A TIME WORLD" tour with two consecutive performances in Indianapolis, now faces three felony charges of reckless endangerment and an additional charge of disorderly conduct.

The incident unfolded at Chief's Bar on Broadway, a popular six-story venue owned by fellow country musician Eric Church. Nashville police were called to the scene after a chair, allegedly hurled by Wallen, descended perilously close to where officers were positioned. Venue staff identified Wallen as the individual responsible, and subsequent video evidence supported their claims, showing Wallen "lunging and throwing an object off the roof," according to a report by WTVF.

Eyewitnesses reported to law enforcement that they observed Wallen engaging in what appeared to be reckless behavior, tossing a chair over the edge of the rooftop and seemingly finding amusement in the act. The arrest report highlighted the inherent danger in Wallen's actions, particularly given the proximity of two police officers at the time, which led to his charges of reckless endangerment.

Wallen's lawyer confirmed to WKRN that the singer was arrested for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct, noting that Wallen is "cooperating fully with authorities." Despite the serious nature of the allegations, Wallen was able to secure his release from the Davidson County Sheriff's Office early Monday morning, April 8th, by posting a $15,250 bond, as confirmed by court representatives to USA TODAY.

Legal documents indicate that Wallen is expected to make his first court appearance on May 3, 2024. This court date is notably close to his scheduled performances at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville on May 2 and May 3, where the "Wasted on You" singer is set to take the stage once again.

This incident adds a controversial chapter to Wallen's career, which has been marked by both significant commercial success and previous instances of public scrutiny. As Wallen prepares for his upcoming court appearance, fans and critics alike will be watching closely to see how this legal situation unfolds and what impact it may have on the country star's future endeavors.
