Chris Young Arrested During Night Out At Nashville Bar
Chris Young‘s start to 2024 has taken a quick turn in the wrong direction. He was arrested on Monday night (1/22) in Nashville, Tennessee.
As reported by WSMV, the country singer was at Tin Roof on Demonbreun Street when he was charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer, and resisting arrest. Young was sitting at the bar when the Alcoholic Beverage Commission was inside the Midtown bar, completing a compliance check.
The affidavit obtained by WSMV states that the 38-year-old began asking questions once his identification was checked at the bar. WSMV has also reported that the “Right Now” singer began recording the agents and decided to follow them over to the next bar, which was DawgHouse Saloon.
Young was with a group of people at Dawg House when the “atmosphere in the bar turned hostile.” Once Young tried to stop “them from leaving when they were done” he “struck” one of the officers.
WSMV reveals that the Metro Nashville Police had to physically detain Young at the DawgHouse Saloon.
Earlier That Day
Young, who is a frequent visitor of Nashville area bars, posted a photo with three others on his Instagram stories earlier in the day captioned, “Wrote some great stuff with these boys today!”
On Thursday (1/18), Young even stopped in at Bootleggers Inn on Broadway and performed on stage. He shared a video to Instagram with the caption, “Nashville be like…”
Young is known for his hits, including “I’m Comin’ Over,” “Famous Friends,” and “Losing Sleep,” among many others. He recently announced that he will release his ninth studio album, Young Love & Saturday Nights, on March 22.
At the top of last year, Young released two tracks, including “Looking For You” and “All Dogs Go To Heaven.” His highly-anticipated ninth studio album, coming in March, follows his 2021 album Famous Friends, which featured collaborations with labelmates Kane Brown and Mitchell Tenpenny.
