Singer and songwriter Gretchen Wilson is most famously known for her debut single "Redneck Woman." She was arrested earlier this week. 

As reported by CNN, Wilson was on an American Airlines flight and was arrested when the plane landed at the International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. 

The officers who made the arrest confirmed two passengers disturbed the peace on the flight and that the Airline reported the matter to the authorities. 

A video of the arrest can be seen below. Authorities confirmed that Wilson was "belligerent" towards them. 



Various outlets have reached out to Wilson's representative who declined to comment. Read more about your favorite celebrities on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa. 

The 45-year-old Wilson was charged with "breach of peace" and detained at the county jail on a bond of $1,000


Wilson first made a name for herself fourteen years ago with the release of her debut album "Here For The Party." 

Her songs soon made it to the top of the "Billboard Hot 100" list and various other charts from around the world. 

She won a Grammy Award in the category of Best Femail Country Vocal Performance for "Redneck Woman" in 2005 and ten other nominations from 2005 until 2011.


Wilson released eight studio albums, and 2013 was the busiest year. She released three albums in 12 months: "Right On Time," "Christmas In My Heart," and "Ready To Get Rowdy."

While she was a significant influence on the country music scene, Wilson has also wowed crowds with her rendition of classic rock songs. 

She performed with Alice In Chains back in 2007 at the VH1 Rock Honors and shared a stage with Randy Bachman as well. 

This was not Wilson's first run-in with the law. A lawsuit was filed against her a decade ago for copyright violations, and the case was eventually settled with Wilson being stripped of the credits.
