Zach Bryan’s arrest video released, shows confrontation with cops

Zach Bryan attempted to negotiate his release prior to his arrest on Thursday. As per dash camera footage obtained by TMZ, the country singer found himself in trouble with a police officer after becoming somewhat disrespectful inside the police car. In the video, Bryan can be seen driving into a parking lot to aid his security guard, who had been pulled over for speeding. Once the “Something in the Orange” singer stepped out of his truck, the officer instructed him to return to his vehicle or face the consequences. Bryan questioned the cop, asking why it was taking so long. The response he received was to either get back in his truck or go to jail. The country crooner replied daringly, stating that he would go to jail. The officer accepted the challenge and promptly handcuffed Bryan as the 27-year-old started to backtrack. Bryan attempted to explain that this was the second time it had happened in three days and that the person in question was his security guard. He apologized for his behavior, admitting he had been disrespectful and should not have acted that way. However, once he was placed inside the police car, Bryan grew irritated and requested that the officer remove his uncomfortable handcuffs. He expressed his dissatisfaction with police officers, claiming that this was why people dislike them. Bryan mentioned that he knew several high-ranking officers in Oklahoma and had even invited 40 of them to one of his recent shows. Upon exiting the vehicle, he tried to explain that he had become worked up because the man in question was his security guard, emphasizing that it would have been different if he were a random person. Bryan was frustrated by what he perceived as a bunch of middle-aged, white men going around arresting people. Before leaving, he called his father to come and pick up his dog, who had been sitting in the passenger seat of his car throughout the ordeal. Shortly after being released on bond, Bryan took to his Instagram Story to apologize and explain the situation to his fans. He admitted that he had acted foolishly and that his actions did not reflect who he truly was as a person. He regretted being disrespectful and stated that he should have been wiser in his choices. However, Bryan also mentioned a previous uncomfortable encounter with another officer just three days prior when he was pulled over for speeding. He recalled an incident where he hesitated to give his address and was threatened with arrest if he refused. Bryan acknowledged that he made mistakes and hoped that everyone understood that he did not believe he was above the law. He expressed remorse for his disrespectful behavior and stated that it was his error. Following the first incident, Bryan was let go with a warning as he was not driving excessively fast. However, during the second incident, he was taken to the police station and charged with obstruction of investigation. After his mugshot was taken, Bryan, a former US Navy veteran, and the arresting officer “eventually shook hands” and went their separate ways. He concluded his message by apologizing to the troopers he had been rude to and expressing the hope that they would meet again under different circumstances.

Zach Bryan tried to talk his way out of jail before his arrest on Thursday.

According to dash camera footage obtained by TMZ, the country crooner got himself into hot water with one police officer after he admittedly got a bit too “lippy” inside the cop car.

In the video, Bryan can be seen driving into a parking lot to try and help his security guard, who had just been pulled over for speeding.

As soon as the “Something in the Orange” singer got out of his truck, the responding officer told him to get back in his vehicle or face the consequences.

“I’m wondering why it’s taking so long,” Bryan asked the cop, who told him to “either get back in [his] truck or go to jail.”

“I’ll go to jail, let’s do it,” Bryan quipped back daringly.

The officer accepted the challenge and immediately placed Bryan in handcuffs as the 27-year-old started to backtrack.

“This is the second time this has happened in three days,” he tried to explain. “This is my security guard. I was just waiting for him and it was taking a long time. I was just curious, sir, I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be an a—hole.”

“I was being a smarta— and I shouldn’t have been. I apologize.”

However, once Bryan was placed inside the cop car, he grew irritated and asked the officer to remove his “insanely uncomfortable” handcuffs.

“This is why people do not like police officers,” he said, noting that he knows just about every high-powered officer in Oklahoma and even invited 40 of them to one of his recent shows.

Once Bryan got out of the vehicle, he tried to explain that he was so worked up because the man in question was his security guard and he couldn’t just leave without him.

“He’s my security guard. It would be different if he was a random person,” he said. “I said, ‘Hey man, what’s taking so long?’ Then he arrested me.”

“A bunch of f—king middle-aged, white dudes going around arresting people,” he added while getting increasingly agitated.

Before Bryan was whisked away, he called his dad to come pick up his dog, who was sitting in the passenger seat of his car the whole time.

Shortly after getting out on bond, the singer took to his Instagram Story to try and explain the situation to fans.

“I was an idiot today,” he said in a video message. “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.”

The singer admitted that he got “too lippy” with the officer and “didn’t help [the] situation by “mouthing off like an idiot.”

“I felt like a child. It was ridiculous. It was immature. And I just pray everyone knows that I don’t think I’m above the law. I was just being disrespectful, and I shouldn’t have been, and it was my mistake.” 

However, Bryan said he was especially annoyed because he had an uncomfortable encounter with another officer just three days prior after being pulled over for speeding.

“I said, ‘Hey, man, I don’t really feel comfortable giving you my address. I’m a musician,’” he recalled. “He says, ‘If you don’t give me your address, I’m gonna have to take you to jail.’”

The “I Remember Everything” singer was then placed in handcuffs until he agreed to give up his personal information.

“He gave me a warning ’cause I wasn’t going too fast or anything,” he told his 2.8 million Instagram followers.

While he was able to go on his way following the first incident, Bryan was taken to the police station and booked for obstruction of investigation the second time around.

However, after taking his mugshot, the former US Navy veteran and the arresting officer “eventually shook hands” and went their separate ways.

“I just wanted to apologize to the trooper — both troopers — that I was rude to,” he concluded. “You didn’t deserve it, and hopefully one day we meet under different circumstances.”
