Chris Young Reveals Injuries He Sustained During Arrest
Chris Young posted a photo showing injuries he sustained when he was arrested last Monday on his Instagram last night (1/30). In the image of his back, you can see two large bruises. Over the photo, he wrote, “Waaaaaay too close to my spine.” In the post, the Police song “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” is playing. He captioned the post, “Just saying…”
Many fans commented on the post, including one who wrote, “They were in the wrong, not Chris Young!! Some of us are glad someone saw the truth and know how to avoid rude comments and know the whole story.” Another fan said, “Wow! I’m sorry this happened to you! This should never have happened. I knew the moment the news reported it that it didn’t make sense as this didn’t match your character.” One not-so-supportive fan commented,” Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I was your biggest fan, but my son is an officer, and I support doing the right thing.”
Young broke his silence yesterday (1/30) when he posted a video clip on TikTok of the incident last Monday night (1/22).
He wrote over the clip he posted to TikTok, “For all the trolls who say, ‘Don’t touch a cop,” I didn’t touch him.” Young captioned the post, “Stop coming at me.”
Many fans reacted to the post with support. One said, “My first emotion was complete disbelief when I heard. I’m a ride-or-die fan, @Chris Young! I am so sorry that you had to go through this. Keep your head high, friend!”
As we reported on Friday (1/26), days after Chris Young was arrested at the Dawg House Bar in Nashville, the Nashville District Attorney announced that charges against the singer are being dropped.
According to The Tennessean, District Attorney General Glenn Funk said, “After a review of all the evidence in this case, the Office of the District Attorney has determined that these charges will be dismissed.”
On Monday night (1/22), Young was sitting at the bar at the Tin Roof when the Alcoholic Beverage Commission was completing a compliance check.
The Tennessean reported that the affidavit said that when agents walked into the bar, Young had his ID in his hand above his head. After the agents scanned his ID and determined it to be accurate, they walked away.
“Mr. Young started asking questions that were answered at that time and then began video recording us. We left the bar after finishing our check and went to Dawg House next door to continue compliance checks,” the affidavit said. The affidavit noted that Young and several of his friends followed.
“While walking out the door, Mr. Young put his hands out to stop me from leaving the bar and struck me on the shoulder. I then pushed Mr. Young to create distance since I had no idea of who Mr. Young was or what he had.” The affidavit added that Young had “slurred speech and bloodshot, watery eyes.”
However, a video of the incident called the account in the affidavit into question.
