Gretchen Wilson Arrested at Connecticut Airport for Minor Disturbance

“Redneck Woman” singer Gretchen Wilson was arrested for “breach of peace” at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, on Aug. 21.

TMZ reports that the on-flight disturbance was the result of Gretchen trying to use an occupied bathroom—words and threatening hand gestures were exchanged in the aftermath.

Gretchen was subsequently arrested and charged with second-degree breach of peace when the flight landed.

The singer posted the $1,000 bond. Gretchen is scheduled to be arraigned in Enfield Superior Court in September.

Gretchen rose to fame in 2004 after her single, “Redneck Woman,” hit No. 1 on the country chart. She picked up a Grammy that year for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
