Seems like he needed somebody who could think about gettin’ him home.

Chris Young was arrested at a Nashville bar Monday night after an altercation with agents with the Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

According to the arrest affidavit, Young was at Tin Roof on Demonbreun Street in midtown when agents were completing a compliance check.

“When we walked into the bar, a man sitting at the bar, later found to be Mr. Young, had his ID in his hand above his head.”

After finishing up, Young began following the agents around and asking questions while recording them.

They then moved to the nearby Dawg House, where Young and his group followed them and the situation turned hostile.

The affidavit says that Young began talking to patrons and the bartender at the Dawg House before stopping officers from leaving once they had finished up.

Young reportedly “struck” one of the officers on the shoulder, and it took two officers to physically detain the country singer.

“While walking out the door Mr. Young put his hands out to stop me from leaving the bar and struck me on the shoulder. I then pushed Mr. Young to create distance since I had no idea of who Mr. Young was or what he had.”

The report indicates that his eyes were bloodshot and watery, and his speech was slurred during the incident.

Young was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. He has since been released from custody.

Chris Young recently announced the release of his “largest album yet,” Young Love & Saturday Nights, coming in March.

And during Nashville’s recent snow storm, Young was spotted at another Nashville bar, hopping onstage at Bootlegger’s on Music City’s lower Broadway to play a few of his hits.
