“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.
