Zach Bryan Apologizes for Arrest, Admits He ‘Behaved Like an Actual Child’

Country singer Zach Bryan has addressed his recent arrest, admitting that he behaved poorly during a traffic stop in Vinita, Oklahoma. Bryan, 27, was arrested on an obstruction of investigation charge and acknowledged that he acted like an “actual child” and an “idiot” when interacting with a police officer who had pulled over his security guard. The incident occurred while Bryan was driving to Boston. He explained the situation in an Instagram message to his followers, expressing regret for his behavior and emphasizing that it didn’t reflect his true character.

Zach Bryan addressed his 2.8 million followers as“I’ve got seven Red Bulls in me, and I just wanted to be completely transparent with everyone who listens to my music about what happened with me getting arrested and everything,” ,

I want to start by saying I had to deal with the legalities of it, I did go to jail, they didn’t play favorites, and I was an idiot today. My decisions did not reflect who I was as a person — I just want to make that clear. I should’ve been smarter about it.

Bryan explained that he had decided to drive to Boston, with his security guard following closely behind him, when the employee was pulled over.

We’re like 40 minutes away, he’s behind me and I see him getting pulled over,” He described the situation regarding the traffic stop in Vinita, Oklahoma. “I go around the block and I pull back around. And I’m just sitting there, I didn’t get out of the vehicle or anything.

After waiting for about 10 minutes, Bryan decided to get out of his car and see what had happened.

The police officer warned him that he would be taken to jail if he didn’t return to his vehicle.

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,” he shared. “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.

After getting “more and more angry” while in the cop car, Bryan admitted that he began “mouthing off, like an idiot.”

Like an actual child,” he said, adding that he “was upset.”

I was in jail for a few hours,” he said. “When I got there I kind of lightened up because I cooled off. Everyone was super kind. I was in my jail cell for a while.”

Bryan also discussed another police encounter that occurred the previous day when he was pulled over by a cop while driving through a small town in Oklahoma.

First thing he asks for is license and registration and my address,” Bryan said. “And I told him, ‘Hey man I don’t really feel comfortable giving you my address. I’m a musician and I’m not comfortable with it.’

He said if I didn’t give him my address he would take me to jail,” he continued. “And I’m like, ‘Man, I’m not giving you my address.’ So he tells me to step out of the vehicle, he puts handcuffs on me, and I’m like, ‘Man what the hell is going on? Why are you doing this?‘”

Bryan explained that the officer let him off with a warning after he changed his attitude and showed respect, rather than talking back. He admitted to behaving poorly, describing himself as an “idiot,” and emphasized that his actions during these incidents did not represent his true character.

“I’m a grown man and I shouldn’t have behaved like that and it won’t happen again,” he said.
