People Are Going To Chief’s Just To Try And See The Chair That Morgan Wallen Threw Off The Roof

I feel like there’s just so much more to see at Chiefs.

But since Morgan Wallen’s latest arrest in Nashville, people are extremely interested in seeing the exact chair that was allegedly launched off the sixth floor of Eric Church’s new Nashville bar, Chiefs, on Sunday night.

According to News Channel 5, Wallen was pointed out by the staff as the culprit, after the chair stuck the ground just a few feet from where they were standing. Metro Nashville 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.”

The Metro Nashville Police Department released a statement on the arrest, and has since put out 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, the internet has kept the jokes coming, but I’ll be honest, if I see one more meme about George Strait’s “The Chair” and Morgan, I’m going to have to get off of the internet forever. It was funny the first time, guys, but I think we’ve run that one into the ground (no pun intended but I like it).

And according to People, who spoke with sources at the bar since this happened a few days ago, countless people have stopped into the bar now just to see the chair on the top floor, because of course they are. Can’t say I’m really surprised by that, honestly…

Spoiler alert, though, y’all. While it looked like the chair held up decently well considering the intense drop, I don’t think it’s in any condition to actually be used and has probably since been discarded of.

But, seeing as Chief’s literally just officially opened less than a week ago, it’s good to have people coming in regardless because that means they’re making money. No such thing as bad press, right? I mean, look at this thing… ain’t nobody sitting in that now:

And for whatever this is worth, People also reported that all of the tables at the top of Chief’s have all four chairs, except for one table, which, you guessed it, just has three at the moment.

While we haven’t heard directly from Mr. Church yet on the incident, his bar did have a pretty great sign out front that read:

“Our pigs fly… our chairs don’t…”

Guess you have to keep your head on a swivel on Broadway these days not only for the people around you on ground level, but for chairs and objects flying off of the rooftops, too…
