Grammy-Winning Country Singer Arrested

Aug 22, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A Grammy-winning country music star was arrested following what has been described by authorities as a “minor disturbance” on an incoming flight at Bradley International Airport, near Hartford, Conn.

The AP reports that Gretchen Wilson was arrested at the airport after police say she became “belligerent” toward troopers.

Wilson, 45, was reportedly charged with breach of peace in connection with the incident Tuesday evening. The singer, from Lebanon, Tenn., was reportedly being interviewed by troopers on a runway when they arrested her.

“Bail was set at $1,000,” the AP reports. “A court hearing scheduled for Wednesday was postponed to Sept. 13, and Wilson didn’t appear in court.”

Wilson won the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 2004 for “Redneck Woman.”

  1. A “minor disturbance” leads to arrest? Nothing “minor” should lead to an arrest. Anyone sings a song titled “Redneck Woman” does not perform a “minor disturbance.”

  2. Never heard of him… So can not be a real major Star or Winner
