Morgan Wallen has been arrested in downtown Nashville this morning (Monday, April 8th), following an alleged incident at Eric Church's newly opened bar, Chief's.

The details are still emerging, but according to reports, Morgan is being accused of throwing a chair from the sixth story of Chief's, which landed near police officers on the street, who subsequently interviewed staff regarding who was responsible.

In the arrest report, as revealed by News Channel 5 Nashville, officers were allegedly shown a video of Morgan Wallen “lunging and throwing an object over the roof”.

The arrest took place shortly after 12:30am on the morning of Monday, April 8th, with Morgan Wallen facing three felony charges of reckless endangerment, in addition to a misdemeanour charge of disorderly conduct. His bond was set at $15,250, with Morgan being released a few hours after being arrested.
