Morgan Wallen took to social media to apologize for his arrest on public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges over the weekend. Wallen also thanked the arresting officers for their professional behavior.
Nashville police arrested the 27-year-old around 11PM after observing security kick him out of Kid Rock’s honky tonk in downtown Nashville. Security escorted him out after he began kicking glass items inside the bar and music venue, and officers say he posed a danger to himself and the public. Police arrested Wallen for “being intoxicated in public, unable to take care of himself, and the reasonable likelihood the offense would continue.” Wallen’s bond was set at $500 for the two charges.
Wallen apologized on Twitter: “Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air. I went out downtown last night with a few old friends. After a couple bar stops, we were horse-playing with each other. We didn’t mean any harm, and we want to say sorry to any bar staff or anyone that was affected.Thank you to the local authorities for being so professional and doing their job with class,” he added. “Love y’all.”
