– A misdemeanor charge of breaching the peace against Gretchen Wilson was dropped on Thursday in Connecticut pending she meets conditions of the deal.
Wilson was arrested on Aug. 21 at Bradley International Airport near Hartford, Conn. after getting into an altercation with a fellow passenger.
TMZ reported that Wilson appeared in Enfield Superior Court in Connecticut today had the charge dismissed. The charge will be officially dropped in 13 months if she stays out of trouble in that area and donates $500 to a charity for injured crime victims.
In the incident, State Police went to the airport after receiving a call about the disturbance. While interviewing Wilson, 45, she allegedly became belligerent and was charged with breach of peace. Wilson was playing a private show at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut on that night.
TV station WFSB in Hartford, Conn. reported that Wilson arose from her seat on the plane to use the bathroom and knocked on the door because the person was taking too long. 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 especially aggressive. The woman complained about Wilson to flight attendants, and the singer received a Band-Aid for treatment.
