Police Report Details What Zach Bryan Said Before His Arrest
Threats to get the mayor and perhaps even the governor of Oklahoma involved were reportedly made as the singer was in handcuffs. On social media, Bryan took ownership of his bad behavior, saying he acted immaturely, like an idiot or a child.
"I just pray everyone knows that I don't think I'm above the law,” he acknowledges. “I was just being disrespectful and I shouldn't have been. It was my mistake."
What Did Zach Bryan Say to Police?
Some time after Bryan's bodyguard was pulled over for driving 78MPH in a 55MPH zone, Bryan got out of his truck and started to question what was taking so long. The officer told him to get back in the car or he'd go to jail, to which TMZ — who obtained the police report — reports he said, “I’ll go to jail, let’s do it.”
Once in handcuffs, Bryan remarked to officers actions like this were why people don’t like police. Later, he added, “This is the second time this has happened in three days. These f—ing cops are out of control” and “You boys need checked, a bunch of f—ing middle aged white dudes arresting people.”
At one point, Bryan started to apologize, but also said he’d get the mayor involved. He called his father to come retrieve his dog, and afterward police say Bryan's dad said the governor would put his finger on the arrest.
Ultimately, the country star was booked and charged with obstructing an investigation (the initial traffic stop of his bodyguard) and after a few hours, he was released.
"I was just an idiot and I'll take the fall for it. I'm a grown man and I shouldn't have behaved like that. And it won't happen again," he tells fans.
From there, Bryan continued his drive to watch his Philadelphia Eagles play football this weekend.
