Zach Bryan Arrested in Oklahoma: ‘I Was Out of Line’

Zach Bryan was arrested Thursday evening (Sept. 7) in Oklahoma for obstruction of investigation, according to the Craig County Sheriff’s Office.

“Today, I had an incident with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol,” he writes in a social media post. “Emotions got the best of me, and I was out of line in the things I said.”

There are currently no other details on the country/rock star’s arrest, which was first reported by TMZ.


Bryan was born in Oologah, Oklahoma, and lives in nearby Tulsa, while the sheriff’s office where he was booked and photographed is in Vinita, Oklahoma — an hour northeast of Tulsa.

As TMZ noted, Bryan’s most recent social media post is a photo of his dog in the passenger seat of a car with the caption “On the road again, gonna go see the birds win.” The Instagram Story is timestamped around 7 p.m. ET, so near the time of his booking at 7:42 p.m. ET (6:42 p.m. local time), according to the Craig County Sheriff’s website. It appears that Bryan is en route to see his favorite NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles, take on the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday for their week 1 match-up.

It’s been a banner professional week for the breakout music star, who scored his first Billboard 200 No. 1 album with his new self-titled project and his first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 song with “I Remember Everything,” featuring Kacey Musgraves, debuting atop both lists this week. Concurrently, all 16 songs from the album debut on the Hot 100.

Bryan broke through in 2022 with his American Heartbreak album and its slow-burning hit song “Something in the Orange,” which was a top 10 hit on the Hot 100.

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.
