In a post on Twitter, Bryan gave his side of the story: “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.
“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.”
Bryan is currently No.1 in both the Billboard 200, with his self-titled major label debut, and the Hot 100 with Kacey Musgraves collaboration “I Remember Everything,” which features on the album.
