Morgan Wallen has addressed his recent arrest in Nashville, and explained he wanted to make several amends before issuing a public statement Friday.

The country music star who was detained by police for allegedly hurling a chair from the roof of a downtown bar, shared his thoughts on X, previously Twitter.

Wallen also expressed his respect for the police officers who work daily to ensure public safety.

The incident took place April 7 when Wallen was charged with three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. Eyewitnesses reported that Wallen threw the chair close to where Nashville PD officers were stationed, seemingly without provocation. Prior to the incident, Wallen appeared calm, engaging in conversation at the bar, with no signs of the ensuing chaos, according to outlet.
