"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," Bryan wrote on X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter. "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 mugshot 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's popularity has surged in the last few years, with his self-titled album standing at No. 1 currently on the Billboard 200 chart. His song "I Remember Everything" featuring Kacey Musgraves currently sits No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It is one of his six songs currently on the Billboard Hot 100 top 40.

As of Friday morning, Bryan has 21 of the top 70 songs on Apple Music.
