The Chair Incident: Morgan Wallen’s Arrest

The Chair Incident: Morgan Wallen’s Arrest

Surveillance cameras in downtown Nashville captured the moment that Morgan Wallen allegedly threw a chair over a rooftop bar railing, leading to his arrest on Sunday night. As seen in footage obtained by TMZ, a chair could be seen flying through the air from the top floor of Chief’s Bar on Broadway before landing just a few feet in front of police officers. Although the video doesn’t show who threw the chair, onlookers at the bar owned by Eric Church claimed to police that the “Last Night” singer, 30, was the culprit. Staff members also claimed that Wallen laughed after chucking the chair, per local outlet News Channel 5.

Arrest and Charges

After the alleged outburst, officers arrested the country crooner on three counts of reckless endangerment. He was also charged with disorderly conduct. Footage shows cops talking to the handcuffed singer outside the bar before he was loaded into the backseat of a squad car. Despite the situation, Wallen appeared to be in good spirits, smiling at fans through the tinted windows, per video obtained by the outlet. The “You Proof” singer was then taken to the police station, where he smiled wide for his mugshot. Wallen’s bond was set at $15,250 and he was released from Davidson County Jail around 3:30 a.m. local time, just over four hours after the incident occurred. The “Wasted On You” singer’s attorney told Page Six that he is “cooperating fully with authorities.” Wallen is expected to appear in criminal court on May 3.

Possible Motivation for the Incident

Although the singer’s reps didn’t reveal what prompted the fit, a source told the Daily Mail that he has been on edge since his ex-fiancée KT Smith married another man last week. The “crushed” country star, who dated the influencer on and off from 2016 until 2019, reportedly has “never gotten over her even though he couldn’t stay faithful to her.” “Whatever happened at that bar had to be reality hitting him in the face over losing the love of his life,” an insider told the outlet. However, a different source told Page Six that the “Thinkin’ Bout Me” singer’s blowup had nothing to do with Smith’s change in relationship status. Smith shocked her social media followers – and Wallen, apparently – last week after announcing that she and Luke Scornavacco tied the knot just five days after getting engaged. The newlyweds dated for less than a year before saying “I do.” Meanwhile, Wallen has not had a serious relationship since his split from Smith.

Overall, it is clear that Morgan Wallen’s recent arrest has caused a significant stir in Nashville. The surveillance footage capturing the chair incident has sparked a frenzy of speculation and discussion, with conflicting reports about what may have led to Wallen’s outburst. As the case moves to criminal court and more details emerge, it will be interesting to see how this incident impacts Wallen’s career and personal life moving forward.
