NASHVILLE, Tenn. (NEWSnet/AP) — Country music singer Morgan Wallen has been arrested. Police say he threw a chair from the rooftop of a six-story bar in downtown Nashville.

Wallen, 30, was booked into jail early on three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, Metro Nashville Police said.

Charges stem from a chair being thrown from atop Chief’s. The chair landed on Broadway, about three feet from two officers.

Police talked to witnesses and reviewed security footage. Witnesses told officers they watched as Wallen picked up a chair, threw it over the roof and laughed.

Wallen's attorney, Worrick Robinson, confirmed the arrest and said the singer is cooperating with authorities. He was released from custody and has a court date scheduled for May 3.
