Gretchen Wilson’s “Breach of Peace” Charges to Be Dropped After $500 Donation

Good news regarding Gretchen Wilson’s legal woes.

After an on-flight incident aboard American Airlines on Aug. 21, the “Redneck Woman” singer was arrested for “breach of peace” when she caused a disturbance at the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn.

Gretchen was back in a Connecticut court on Sept. 13 to settle the case with a $500 charitable contribution to the criminal injuries compensation, a court charity.

“This has been incredibly trying for me in many ways,” said Gretchen to NBC Connecticut News. “I’m a person like everyone else and we’ve all had bad days. It’s just that celebrities are kind of targeted when they have one.”
