Country singer Gretchen Wilson arrested at Bradley International Airport

Gretchen Wilson, the country singer best known for her hit "Redneck Woman", was arrested in CT after causing a disturbance on a flight.

Wilson, of Lebanon, Tennessee, is expected in court Wednesday.

State police were called to Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks at around 7 p.m. on Tuesday for a "minor disturbance" aboard an incoming flight, officials said. She was charged with breach of peace.

The country singer started knocking on the restroom door because the person inside was taking a while.

USA hits Russian individuals and companies with sanctions over North Korean ties
The move reinforced the administration's "maximum pressure" campaign to force North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons. US officials also slapped sanctions on two Russian individuals for helping Divetechnoservices circumvent USA sanctions.

It's not the first time Wilson has been accused of disturbing a commercial flight.

The passenger then said the bathroom door swung open almost hitting Wilson.

Wilson, who famously crooned, "I ain't no high-class broad" in her Grammy-winning country song, was booked, and took a mug shot in which her eyes were completely closed. Her case was not listed on the docket and it couldn't be determined if she has a lawyer.

Wilson, best known for her single "Redneck Woman", was scheduled to perform at the Mohegan Sun casino in CT on Wednesday.
