2019 American Idol winner Laine Hardy was issued a warrant for arrest from the Louisiana State University Police Department yesterday.

Without going into detail, the 21-year-old country singer took to social media yesterday to announce the warrant (get ahead of the story, I imagine), and shared the following the statement:

“Earlier today, I received a warrant due to allegations made against me and have been fully cooperative with the Louisiana State University Police Department.

I understand that my career has thrust me into the public spotlight, and I embrace that wholeheartedly as my entire world belongs to my music and my fans.

However, due to the sensitive nature of this allegation, I humbly ask for privacy at this time. I have the utmost respect for the law and will assist in their investigation as needed moving forward.”

There’s no word yet on what the allegations are, but I’m sure they will be brought to light shortly.

LSU has confirmed that there is an active investigation involving actions of Hardy, however declined to comment further.

The Louisiana native won Season 17 of American Idol back in 2019, beating out Alejandro Aranda as runner-up and Madison VanDenburg, second runner-up.

His debut album Here’s To Anyone was released in September of 2021.
