Charges have been dropped against Chris Young

The three charges Chris Young was arrested for have officially been dismissed. The entire incident happened when Young was at the Dawg House Saloon on Demonbreun Street at around 8:30 p.m. Monday. Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) agents walked in to complete a compliance check. Young reportedly held his ID over his head and one of the agents checked it.

The video shows the agent pushing Young who falls backwards. He got back up and allegedly put his hands up. The agent says he pushed Chris to get distance between them. They claim he was not cooperating with their demands. The agents also claim his speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot.

It was also noted the entourage with Young was not helping matters and actually making the situation hostile. So, the agents arrested Chris and booked him into the metro jail where he was released the following day.
