The current Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping folk-country artist Zach Bryan has revealed details leading up to his arrest Thursday in Oklahoma, South of USA.
“I Remember Everything” Bryan described on social media as an “incident with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol,” Yahoo Entertainment reports.
In his close to five-minute narrative on the social media site, Bryan was calm and stated more than once that he “acted like a child” during the incident.
Bryan was taken to Craig County Sheriff’s Office in Vinita, Oklahoma, upon being detained, he had a mugshot taken at 6.42pm after being booked on what was described as an “obstruction of investigation” charge, according to the sheriff’s office’s available online records.
Bryan’s explanation of what led to his arrest and subsequent release from jail on Thursday began with something that happened a day before when he was pulled over for speeding in Oklahoma.
An arrest affidavit detailing Bryan’s arrest was released by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Friday.
The report said Bryan pulled up next to his security guard, who was the subject of a traffic stop by a state trooper, and asked the patrolman why it was taking so long.
The trooper asked Bryan to get back into his pickup truck and move along or he’d take him to jail for interfering with the traffic stop.
“I’ll go to jail, let’s do it,” Bryan told the trooper, according to the arrest affidavit.
He was placed under arrest, and while arguing with the trooper he made several disparaging remarks about law enforcement calling officers “middle aged white dudes arresting people.”
During a phone conversation with his father on speakerphone, Bryan made reference to open containers of beer in the truck.
His father said he would be calling the Governor, according to the arrest affidavit.
