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 McDonald’s 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 Stuart’s 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 driver’s 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 Ain’t Workin’,” a duet with Travis Tritt.
