NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A country music artist is apologizing after he was arrested in Downtown Nashville over the weekend.

Metro officers observed Country Music artist Morgan C. Wallen being kicked out of Kid Rock's bar at 221 Broadway by bar security just after 11 p.m. on Saturday. 

According to the police report, Wallen was kicked out for being disorderly inside of the bar, kicking glass items inside.

Officers at the scene said Wallen had a strong odor of alcohol and was given the opportunity to walk away from the scene with his friends, but he refused and was placed into police custody. 

Wallen posted about the incident on his Twitter on Sunday evening saying he stopped back to the bar to apologize for the incident and included a thank you to the Metro Police for their work.

Wallen has been charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Wallen signed with Big Loud Records in 2016 and released his debut single "The Way I talk" soon afterwards.
