The Nashville District Attorney has dropped all charges against Chris Young related to his arrest at a bar in Nashville last week.
Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk released a statement that reads, “Regarding the Chris Young incident – After a review of all the evidence in this case, the Office of the District Attorney has determined that these charges will be dismissed.”
The charges were dropped after a review of evidence, including security camera footage.
Following the news, Young posted a video on Instagram saying, “Hey guys, so I just wanted to say something. You know, I’m still processing a lot through the false accusations and everything that went on in the past week. But I wanted to say first and foremost, thank you to everybody that had my back.”
“It meant the world to me and I had so many friends and fans reach out and say ‘We got you, we don’t believe you did any of this,’” he continued. “So it’s really nice to see the charges get dismissed. It’s not something I wish anybody has to go through ever. But, like I said, the bright spot was seeing just all the love and support.”
As a “thank you” to his supporters, Young shared the new song “Double Down,” which can be checked out below.
The country singer-songwriter was arrested at a Nashville bar early last week and was charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
He was taken into custody and later released on bonds of $250 for the disorderly conduct charge, $1,000 for the resisting arrest charge, and $1,250 for the assault charge.
Young is currently set to drop his latest album, Young Love and Saturday Nights, in March.
