Chris Young Breaks His Silence After Arrest
One week after Chris Young was arrested in a Nashville bar for “disorderly conduct,” the singer has addressed the incident. Chris posted a video clip of the incident last Monday night (1/22).
He wrote over the clip he posted to TikTok, “For all those trolls saying, ‘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. Here are a few of fan’s comments on his TikTok:
“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!”
“Thank goodness they had cameras! This is ridiculous; I’m sorry this happened to you.”
“I’m sorry this happened and glad there is video footage. I hope your back is ok.”
“Gotta love Chris Young, period.”
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 were 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.”
Last 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 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 and likely led to the charges being dropped.
