Country Music Star Facing Years In Jail After Wild Incident

Country music star Morgan Wallen was arrested on Sunday night in Nashville on felony charges after allegedly throwing a chair from the rooftop of a Broadway bar in downtown Nashville.

According to arrest documents, officers were standing in front of Chiefs Bar on Broadway when they witnessed a chair coming from above and landing just three feet away from them. The officers investigated and found out that it was Wallen who threw the chair. The 30-year-old singer was booked and charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

Wallen’s lawyer released a brief statement in response to the arrest, stating that the singer is cooperating fully with authorities. However, this is not Wallen’s first run-in with the law.

The country star has a history of run-ins with the law including a 2017 arrest for public intoxication and disorderly conduct and a 2020 arrest for public intoxication and disorderly conduct outside Kid Rock’s Nashville bar. These previous incidents may play a role in the severity of the charges Wallen is facing for this latest incident.

Wallen rose to fame after competing on the sixth season of “The Voice” in 2014. He then signed with Big Loud Records in 2016 and released his first single, “The Way I Talk,” the following year. His debut album, “If I Know Me,” was released in 2018 and has achieved success on country music charts. Wallen has also experienced personal successes, including the birth of his son Indigo in 2020, with his former girlfriend Katie Smith.

Smith, who welcomed their son Indigo with Wallen, recently got engaged to another man, Jerry Scornavacco. Some online have speculated that Wallen’s recent arrest may have been related to his former lover’s engagement, causing him to act out in a drunken state. Others have pointed out that this is not an isolated incident for Wallen, and his actions could be a result of a much bigger issue.

Wallen has not yet commented on the incident, but his arrest has caused quite a stir on social media. Fans and non-fans alike have taken to social media to share their opinions on the matter, with some defending the singer and others condemning his behavior. Some have even questioned the speed of Smith’s new relationship and the alleged “shotgun wedding” that took place after her engagement.

Despite his arrest, Wallen’s career has continued to thrive. His latest single, “Whiskey Glasses,” reached number one on the Hot Country Songs chart, and he is currently on tour with country music artist, Luke Bryan.

This latest incident may affect Wallen’s future career prospects, as some companies have already distanced themselves from the singer. Big Loud Records has suspended Wallen’s contract indefinitely, and several radio stations have reportedly removed his songs from their playlists.

As Wallen’s legal proceedings continue, the world awaits to see his response and what the future holds for his music career. Some speculate that this incident may serve as a wake-up call for the country star, while others worry that it may be the beginning of a downward spiral.
