Country Singer Zach Bryan Arrested by Oklahoma Police

On Thursday, singer Zach Bryan was arrested for interfering with police during a traffic stop of one of his staffers.

Bryan was booked in Oklahoma for obstruction, reported Breitbart.

He then went on social media to apologize, but the apology did not exactly go over as planned.

The Outlaw

According to the Breitbart report, a man working for Bryan was pulled over by police while his team was on the road to Boston.

Bryan, who is also a Navy veteran, was getting impatient regarding how long the stop was taking, so he got out of his vehicle and started to mouth off to the police, leading to Bryan being arrested for obstruction of an investigation.

It was the low to his high of just finding out that "I Remember Everything" hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

After the fact, Bryan apologized, stating, "And like a dumbass, I was like, 'Take me to f–king jail? What do you mean?' So I get too lippy with him, he brings me over to his car, and I just didn't help my situation at all.

"I felt like a child, it was ridiculous and immature. I just pray everyone knows I don't think I'm above the law. I was just being disrespectful and I shouldn't have been. It was my mistake."

Retired Sgt. Betsy Branter Smith, a spokesperson for the National Police Association, accepted his apology and stated that the officers were appreciative of the apology.

Smith stated, "This is a very frustrated young man and he had some inappropriate things to say, but he complied with the officers. He didn't try to fight them or attack them. He mouthed off. And he apologized."

Fans, however, were not so kind.

One fan responded, "You can call yourself outlaw country now since you spent 3 hours in jail."

Another referenced the Trump mug shot, writing, "I think you should have added the mug shot for a little razzle-dazzle," the New York Post reported.

There were some kind comments, however, with one fan writing, "Zach, i'm so proud of the way ur handling the recent events being covered in the news. love u so much. never let ur crown fall king."

According to reports, the SUV that was stopped had been clocked at 78 mph in a 55 mph zone and 60 mph in a 35 mph zone.
