Wilson arrested after airplane disturbance
Wednesday, August 22, 2018
– Gretchen Wilson was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly creating a disturbance aboard a flight coming to Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn.
State Police went to the airport at about 7 p.m. after receiving a call about the disturbance. While interviewing Wilson, 45, she allegedly became belligerent and was charged with breach of peace. She was released after posting $1,000 bond.
Wilson was playing a private show at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut on Wednesday night.
TV station WFSB in Hartford, Conn. reported that Wilson got up from her seat on the plane to use the bathroom and knocked on the door because the person was taking awhile. Wilson allegedly was nearly hit by the bathroom door, when it swung open, according to a passenger.
The two exchanged words, although the TV report said it was not particularly aggressive. The woman complained about Wilson to flight attendants, while Wilson received a Band-Aid for treatment.
A court date was continued from Wednesday to next month.

In between, she climbed "Under the Covers" with Rod Stewart and the Faces, Jackson Browne, Led Zeppelin and Derek and the Dominoes, among others, for a night on the town singing classic rock songs. ...
Gretchen Wilson is an example of how quickly commercial success can come and go in this whacky business. The Redneck Woman was all the rage in 2004 with "Here's to the Party." The flag bearer for the trailer park crowd personified the tough chick, but there was far more musical depth to her than the persona she embraced through four albums including her last one, 2010's "I Got Your Country Right Here."
In this disposable world, even though her first 3 discs went ...
