In an unexpected twist that shook Nashville’s nightlife, country sensation Morgan Wallen found himself in hot water after a daring stunt. The “One Night at a Time” singer made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he threw a chair off the rooftop of Chief’s Bar, a hot new spot owned by fellow country star Eric Church. The incident, which occurred late Sunday evening, endangered bystanders below, including two police officers.

Wallen, recognized for both his chart-topping hits and previous controversies, was arrested and charged with felony reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. His attorney confirmed Wallen’s cooperation with law enforcement and his subsequent release from jail, emphasizing the singer’s commitment to resolving the matter. This incident adds another chapter to Wallen’s rollercoaster career, which saw a major setback in 2021 but also remarkable achievements, including a successful tour and accolades at major award ceremonies.
