Morgan Wallen

Shoulda left them Broadway chairs alone…

Country music superstar Morgan Wallen is in trouble with the law once again after he reportedly threw a chair of the 6-story roof of Eric Church’s new Nashville bar, Chief’s.

According to News Channel 5, officers arrested Morgan, who was pointed out by the staff as the culprit, after the chair stuck the ground just a few feet from where they were standing. Nashville Metro Police reviewed security footage and it confirmed that he threw an object off the roof.

Wallen was arrested on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon/reckless endangerment, two counts for the two officers who were in the vicinity and one for the danger to the public. Wallen was also charged with disorderly conduct with a bond was set at $15,250.

Wallen’s attorney released the following statement:

“At 10:53p Sunday evening Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

And just a few minutes ago, the Metro Nashville Police Department released a statement on the arrest, along with Morgan’s newest mugshot:

“Country artist Morgan Wallen, 30, was booked early today on 3 cts of felony reckless endangerment and 1 ct of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for throwing a chair from the rooftop of Chief’s Bar Sun night. The chair landed on Broadway, close to 2 MNPD officers. His bond: $15,250.”

Of course this isn’t Morgan’s first mugshot in Nashville. If you remember, he was also arrested back in 2020 after being kicked out of Kid Rock’s bar for breaking a glass and gave us this gem…

After his latest arrest, you can see Morgan laughing and smiling in the back of the cop car as he’s waiting to be taken to jail. Whatever he said, he had the police officers cracking up too…or maybe they’re just laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation:

Morgan was also spotted leaving the downtown jail a little before 4am:

Of course, pretty soon he’ll have his own bar in downtown Nashville to get kicked out of.

Morgan recently announced that his new bar, This Bar and Tennessee Kitchen, is coming to Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville, Tennessee this summer.

The venue will be a bar, restaurant and live music concept, which is being brought to life by Morgan along with TC Restaurant Group, which currently operates several artist-themed bars on Broadway, including Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar, Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge, and Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.

Morgan says the name was inspired by his song “This Bar,” and he hopes to bring some of his East Tennessee roots to Music City through the menu and music:

“I sing about finding myself in ‘this bar’ and now it’s coming to life. This venue will hold true to everything I love and is inspired by my fans and the way they have embraced me and my music.

We’re designing a menu around some of my family favorites, so it brings a piece of East Tennessee to Music City. I hope This Bar is a place you’ll want to find yourself in and make memories with your friends and family and celebrate the way country music has brought us all together.”

As speculated, the building sits on 4th Avenue adjacent to the historic Ryman Auditorium, which is just off Broadway in the heart of Music City. It will be approximately 30,000 square feet and feature three live music stages, six bars and an open-air rooftop.

The menu will be curated by Wallen with Chef Tomasz Wosiak, Vice President of Culinary Development for TC Restaurant Group, and feature southern delicacies, in addition to some of Mama Wallen’s own recipes.

Adam Hesler, President at TC Restaurant Group, says:

“Morgan Wallen is one of the most sought after stars in the music industry, and we are thrilled that he has trusted us to deliver a concept that will bring him closer to his fans, hold fast to his roots and enshrine his name among an exclusive group of artists who can claim international stardom with a Lower Broadway destination fans all over the world seek out.”
