Gretchen Wilson Got Arrested Plus A Collection Of Country Star Mug Shots

Gretchen Wilson was arrested Tuesday after causing a disturbance during a flight to Connecticut.

Gretchen Wilson was involved in a "minor disturbance" on a flight landing at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn. Connecticut State Police responded to the situation; they say Wilson "became belligerent toward the troopers and caused a disturbance" while they were speaking with her. She was then arrested and charged with breach of peace.

She's not the only country star to be arrested though. Taste of Country put together a gallery of country star mug shots through the years. You can see the rest of their gallery here, but these are a few of our favorite.

Michael Ray

Michael Ray was arrested early on Dec. 20, 2017, on charges of driving under the influence and drug possession. The singer got into a minor car accident at a McDonald's drive-thru in Eustis, Fla., leading to the charges and his arrest. The DUI charge was later reduced to a reckless driving charge due to police error, leaving Ray to face one count of reckless driving and one county of felony marijuana possession.

Kid Rock

After a show in DeKalb County, Ga., Kid Rock and his crew got into a scuffle outside a Waffle House. Rock (real name Robert Ritchie) was charged with simple battery, fined $1,000 and required to perform 80 hours of community service. It was at least the fourth arrest from throughout his 20-year career.

Billy Currington

Billy Currington turned himself into police after a grand jury indicted him on terroristic threats and abuse of an elder charges in April of 2013. Prosecutors dropped the charge of terroristic threats, and he pled no contest to the abuse of an elderly person charge.
