Chris Young‘s attorney Bill Ramsey has issued a statement denouncing the singer’s arrest earlier this week, when he was charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest after an altercation at a bar in Nashville.
After his arrest on Monday night (Jan. 22), Young’s mugshot was shared across social media and national media outlets. Reports shared that he had allegedly assaulted a Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) agent who was checking IDs at a downtown bar in Nashville.
Video evidence that surfaced on Wednesday (Jan. 24) seemed to show that the agent initiated the physical altercation with Young.
Though the singer has been unable to comment directly on the incident, his attorney has spoken out.
“What happened to my client Chris Young at a bar in Nashville on Monday night was wrong and he never should have been arrested and charged in the first place,” Ramsey says. “In light of the video evidence, Tennessee ABC needs to drop the charges and apologize for the physical, emotional and professional harm done towards my client.”
