Morgan Wallen took to Twitter on Sunday (May 24) to issue a statement regarding his recent arrest.

“Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air,” he wrote. “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. Love y’all.”

Wallen was arrested on Saturday (May 23) in Nashville at Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse (located at 221 Broadway) after “being disorderly inside of the bar and kicking glass items.” According to a police report, Wallen was given multiple chances to leave with his friends but did not.

The singer was charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He was booked 11:43 pm on May 23 and released at 1:47 am on May 24. According to court records, Wallen is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing on both charges on July 1, 2020.
