Country Music Star Morgan Wallen Arrested for Allegedly Tossing Chair off Nashville Rooftop

Country music star Morgan Wallen was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday for allegedly tossing a chair off the rooftop of Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ, located on the top floor of Chief’s on Broadway, a bar and restaurant owned by fellow country singer Eric Church. The incident took place just after 10:45 p.m., with the chair landing dangerously close to Metropolitan Nashville Police officers on the ground.

Wallen, known for hits like “Wasted on You,” was booked into Davidson County jail on three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct. He posted a $15,250 bond and was released early Monday morning.

In a playful response to the incident, Chief’s on Broadway changed its marquee to read, “OUR PIGS FLY OUR CHAIRS DON’T.” The establishment, which opened on April 5, offers different experiences on its various floors.

The official Instagram account of Chief’s on Broadway shared a photo of the marquee, captioning it with, “See you at Chief’s.” Singer/songwriter Kyle Elliott commented on the post, referencing Eric Church’s 2009 hit “Smoke a Little Smoke” with the words, “Turned the quiet up and threw a chair down.”

Wallen’s ex-partner, KT Smith, who shares a 3-year-old son with him, denied that the incident was related to her recent surprise marriage to Luke Scornavacco. Smith expressed her hope that Wallen would return to the positive path he was on before this incident.

The arrest occurred at a relatively new establishment, Chief’s on Broadway, which features a live performance space called Neon Steeple. Eric Church himself opened the venue with a special performance and is currently playing a 19-date residency there.
