Country Star Morgan Wallen Arrested for Reckless Endangerment at Eric Church’s Bar

Country music artist Morgan Wallen was arrested in Nashville on charges of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct after allegedly throwing a chair off the roof of Eric Church’s newly opened bar and honky-tonk. The incident took place on the opening weekend of Chief’s, Church’s establishment located on Nashville’s Lower Broadway stretch.

According to the Nashville Metro Police Department, Wallen, 30, was booked on three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He was later released on a $15,250 bond. Wallen’s attorney, Worrick Robinson, confirmed that the singer is fully cooperating with authorities.

The arrest report states that Wallen threw the chair from the sixth-story roof of Chief’s, narrowly missing a group of Nashville police officers who were on the street below. Video evidence reportedly captured Wallen lunging and throwing the object over the roof.

This is not the first time Wallen has faced legal trouble at a Nashville honky-tonk. In May 2020, he was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct at Kid Rock’s bar. The recent incident coincides with Wallen’s upcoming concerts at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on May 2 and 3, with his court appearance scheduled for May 3.

Eric Church, who has maintained a close relationship with Wallen, performed alongside him at the CMA Awards last November. Church and Wallen also partnered to acquire the outdoors magazine and brand Field & Stream. Church has been supportive of Wallen through previous controversies, including the release of a video where Wallen used a racial slur. In a recent interview, Church expressed his hope that Wallen would work on himself and acknowledged the need for the country music industry to strive for improvement.
