‘Redneck woman’ singer Gretchen Wilson arrested after ‘disturbance’ on flight

Country singer Gretchen Wilson arrested at Bradley International Airport

Police arrested Wilson Tuesday night after an incident on a commercial airline flight.

State police were dispatched around 7 p.m.to the airport and while conducting an interview with the 45-year-old Wilson, they said she became belligerent.

During the flight, Wilson reportedly got into a shoving match with another passenger over who was first in line for the restroom.

Wilson had been flying into Bradley International Airport in the Nutmeg State yesterday when she allegedly "created a minor disturbance" on the inbound flight. She was "ultimately taken into custody for Breach of Peace.", the report stated.


Wilson, best known for her single "Redneck Woman", was scheduled to perform at the Mohegan Sun casino in CT on Wednesday.

Her lawyer, Rob Britt, said it would be inappropriate to comment while the court case is pending.

Wilson made a big entrance into the music business in 2004 when she released "Redneck Woman", the lead single for her debut album Here for the Party, and it soared to No. 1 on the country charts.
