Bryan, 27, posted the following statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, roughly an hour after bonding out of Craig County Jail:

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 wrote on Thursday. “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.

He later issued an apology video where he explained his take on the arrest, claiming he was pulled over days prior and let go with a warning. He was then arrested days later and charged with obstructing an investigation after his security guard was pulled over and he intervened.

Bryan’s self-titled album debuted at number one this week on the Billboard 200 album chart, with “I Remember Everything,” his duet with Kacey Musgraves, also debuting at number one.
