Chris Young Falls over Table After Being Shoved by TABC Agent Prior to Arrest: Video (Exclusive)

The country singer was charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest following an altercation at the DawgHouse Saloon in Nashville on Monday

Chris Young stumbled backward and fell over a table after being shoved by a Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) agent at a bar in Nashville Monday night.

Video obtained by PEOPLE shows the country singer, 38, at the DawgHouse Saloon shortly before his arrest. Young is seen reaching out to the TABC agent, who reacts by shoving the musician, causing him to lose his footing and fall backward over a table and chairs. The "Raised on Country" singer then stands, puts his hands up and backs away.

Shortly after, Young was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest following the altercation. A rep for Young did not respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

An arrest affidavit obtained by PEOPLE says the country star initially conversed with the TABC agents at the Tin Roof bar, where officers verified his ID and then worked with the bar staff to check the establishment's ABC cards, at which point Young began filming the moment.

The agents then moved on to neighboring bar DawgHouse Saloon, with Young and multiple friends allegedly following and speaking with its staff. As the TABC agents looked to exit the location, Young reached out and, according to the affidavit, "struck" one of them on the shoulder.

Unaware of Young's identity, the agent pushed the singer away, and another bar patron intervened, reads the affidavit. The "Drinkin' Me Lonely" singer then allegedly "began yelling and screaming," refusing to follow the directions of an agent speaking to him. Footage of Young's arrest obtained by PEOPLE shows the singer calmly requesting clarification.

Following his arrest, Young was taken into custody and later released on bonds of $250 for the disorderly conduct charge, $1,000 for the resisting arrest charge and $1,250 for the assault charge. He's set to appear in court on Feb. 16.

Young will release his new album, Young Love & Saturday Nights, on March 22.
