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.

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.
Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air. I went out downtown last night with a few old friends. After a couple bar stops, we were horse-playing with each other. We didn't mean any harm, and we want to say sorry to any bar staff or anyone that was affected.— morgan wallen (@MorganWallen) May 24, 2020
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.
