Country singer Marty Stuart arrested, charged with DUI
June 24, 2004
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — (AP) Country singer Marty Stuart was charged June 23 with driving under the influence of alcohol, police said.
Dispatcher Jennifer Grant said police received a call about an accident without injuries in the parking lot of a McDonalds that possibly involved alcohol. When officers arrived, they took Stuart to jail, she said.
A jail official said Stuart was charged Wednesday evening with first-offense DUI and released on $1,500 bail.
Calls to Stuarts management company were not immediately returned.
Stuart was charged with drunken driving in April 2002 after police got a tip he was intoxicated at a store. The charge was dismissed when a judge ruled there was not enough probable cause to stop his car, but Stuart lost his drivers license for a year for refusing to take a blood-alcohol test.
Stuart, 45, is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. His hits include “Tempted” and “The Whiskey Aint Workin,” a duet with Travis Tritt.
