Wallen, who smelled strongly of alcohol, was given the chance to leave with friends but refused and was taken into custody by police, WSMV reported.

Wallen was arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct, WSMV reported.

“Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air,” Wallen said Sunday afternoon on social media. “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.”
