Sam Hunt Arrested

Sam Hunt was arrested on Thursday for driving under the influence and violating open container law, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department confirmed to E! News.

According to online records, the 34-year-old country singer was booked into the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility at around 6:00 a.m. He was released a little after 9:00 a.m. on a $2,500 bond and is set to appear in court on Jan. 17, 2020.

Per the arrest warrant, police were notified after a driver was spotted cruising on the wrong side of the road. The driver was traveling south in the northbound lanes of Ellington Parkway near Ben Allen Road before exiting at Cleveland Street and continuing towards Gallatin Avenue. He was also swerving in and out of his lane. As a result, police officers pulled him over.

The officers then identified the driver as Hunt and claimed “there was an obvious odor consistent with alcoholic beverage.” In addition, they reported Hunt had “red bloodshot and watery eyes.” The “Body Like a Back Road” crooner, who was the only person in the vehicle, also had two empty beers next to him.

The lead single from the album, “Leave the Night On”, peaked concurrently on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, making Hunt the first country artist in 22 years, since Billy Ray Cyrus, to reach the top of three country charts simultaneously in the Nielsen SoundScan-era. He is also the first country artist since Clint Black to occupy both year-end numbers one album and single with Montevallo and “Take Your Time”.
