Zach Bryan arrested: Country music star, 27, admits he was 'out of line' in clash with Highway Patrol after he's taken to jail in Oklahoma for obstructing an investigation – a week after album hit No. 1 on Billboard chart

Country singer Zach Bryan was arrested Thursday in Vinita, Oklahoma in connection with obstruction of investigation.

The 27-year-old musical artist was held in custody in the Craig County Jail, TMZ reported, citing jail records.

‘Today I had an incident with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Emotions got the best of me and I was out of line in the things I said,’ he said in a tweet late Thursday. 

He continued: ‘I support law enforcement as much as anyone can, I was just frustrated in the moment, it was unlike me and I apologize. They brought me to jail, and there is a mug shot of me floating around.

‘Prayers we can all move on from this and prayers people know I’m just trying the best I can, I love you guys and I am truly sorry to the officers.’
