Country music star Zach Bryan was arrested Thursday (Sep. 07, 2023) in northeastern Oklahoma.
Records show that Bryan, from Oologah, was arrested for obstruction of an investigation complaint in Craig County. He was booked into jail around 6:45 p.m. No charges have been filed.
Per CNN, It is unclear what an obstruction of investigation violation refers to in this case. Oklahoma law says it’s a misdemeanor when someone “willfully delays or obstructs any public officer in the discharge or attempt to discharge any duty of his or her office.”
Bryan released a statement on social media, saying he had an incident with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and emotions got high. In the statement, Bryan apologized to the trooper.
“Today I had an incident with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Emotions got the best of me and I was out of line in the things I said,” Bryan posted. “I support law enforcement as much as anyone can, I was just frustrated in the moment, it was unlike me and I apologize. They brought me to jail, and there is a mug shot of me floating around. Prayers we can all move on from this and prayers people know I’m just trying the best I can, I love you guys and I am truly sorry to the officers.”
Law enforcement officials have not released the circumstances surrounding Bryan’s arrest.
The arrest comes shortly after Bryan announced that he would embark on a stadium and arena tour this spring.
Bryan also recently released his fourth full-length studio album, Zach Bryan. The album features collaborations with Kacey Musgraves, The Lumineers, Sierra Ferrell, and The War and Treaty.
