Gretchen Wilson Was Arrested for Causing a Disturbance on a Flight

GRETCHEN WILSON caused a disturbance on a flight to Connecticuton Tuesday . . . and was arrested after she landed at Bradley International Airport, near Hartford.

She was in town to do a private show at Mohegan Sun casino.

According to reports,she was flying first class and wanted to use the bathroom, but there was only one on the plane and someone else beat her to it.  They exchanged words . . . and there was some shoving.

But Gretchen wouldn’t let it go.  She kept staring down the aisle and “exchanging threatening hand gestures” with the other passenger.  (???)  Flight attendants had to warn her to stop.  It’s not clear if they said anything to the other passenger.

The crew decided to alert authorities, so the Connecticut State Police were waiting when the flight landed.  As the cops were talking to Gretchen she supposedly threw her hands in the air and demanded to be arrested.

That demand was met.  She was charged with “second degree breach of peace” and her bail was set at $1,000.

There was originally a court hearing scheduled for yesterday, but that was postponed to September 13th.   Gretchen’s overpriced attorney was asked to comment, but said that would be “inappropriate” because the court case is pending.

This isn’t Gretchen’s only “plane disturbance.”  Back in 2007 she was accused of being “belligerent and verbally abusive” to the crew on a flight to Los Angeles.  She was issued an “in-flight citation” for that.
