Recently arrested Morgan Wallen says he’s ‘not proud’ of behavior

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country music star Morgan Wallen, who faces charges stemming in part from accusations that he threw a chair from the roof of a six-story bar, says he doesn’t is “not proud” of his behavior and accepts responsibility.

The “One Thing at a Time” singer publicly responded Friday night on social media to his arrest in Nashville two weeks ago. He faces a May 3 court date after being charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, according to court records.

An arrest affidavit says the chef’s bar chair landed about 3 feet from officers, who spoke to witnesses and reviewed security footage. Witnesses told police they saw Wallen pick up a chair, throw it over the roof and laugh about it. Wallen was booked early April 8 and released.

“I didn’t feel good in public until I made amends with some people. I contacted Nashville law enforcement, my family and the good people at Chief’s. I am not proud of my behavior and I accept responsibility,” Wallen wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Wallen, one of the biggest names in contemporary country, is currently on a stadium tour, including a concert scheduled for Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi.

“I have the utmost respect for the officers who work every day to keep us safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no changes,” indicates his message signed “-MW”.
