Wallen addressed his arrest today in a statement posted to his X account.

“I didn’t feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks. I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s. I’m not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility,” he wrote. “I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change.”

The singer’s arrest came days after he kicked off the 2024 leg of his “One Night at a Time World Tour” earlier this month. He is set to renew it on Saturday in Oxford, Mississippi.

Two officers were in front of Chief’s Bar, a six-story bar-restaurant on Broadway, at the time of the incident. They saw the chair fall, Nashville police said.

Wallen was arrested and charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

He is due in Nashville court on May 3 for “settlement.”

Chief’s is owned by country singer Eric Church and opened its doors just two days prior to the incident.
