Country singer Gretchen Wilson arrested at Bradley International Airport

Grammy-winning country music star Gretchen Wilson has been arrested in connection to what authorities are calling a minor disturbance on a domestic flight.

The Redneck Woman was eventually charged with second-degree breach of peace, along with being given a $1,000 bond and this unfortunate-looking mugshot as a souvenir.

Connecticut State Police confirmed to Yahoo Entertainment that Wilson, 45, was taken into custody on Tuesday evening about 7:15 p.m.

Police say they were called to the airport on a call there was a "disturbance" on an incoming flight.

I have a good relationship with him, it was a good chat that we had and we were very clear. We understand that right now we need these footballers, who have enormous potential.

Wilson is expected in court Wednesday.

It's not the first time Wilson has been accused of disturbing a commercial flight. However, her case was continued until next month. She was scheduled to perform an invitation-only show Wednesday at the Mohegan Sun casino. A rep for the singer has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment's request for comment about the arrest, and Wilson has not addressed it on social media.

Wilson won a Grammy for her 2004 country hit, "Redneck Woman".
