Security footage from the Dawg House in Nashville shows a Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission agent shoving Chris Young . . . rather than the other way around, as early reports made it seem.


To be fair, Chris does put his hands on the guy first.  He puts an arm out to stop him as he’s trying to get by Chris.


But his attorney says Chris just wanted to make sure the agents were legit, after they took a photo of his ID . . . because they weren’t dressed in obvious uniforms.  They were apparently hitting bars and conducting routine compliance checks.


Young’s attorney says, quote, “In light of the video evidence, Tennessee ABC needs to drop the charges and apologize for the physical, emotional and professional harm done towards my client.”


If that doesn’t happen, Young is due in court next month.
