The former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman turned country star was arrested earlier today on three misdemeanor charges: simple possession, casual exchange, and violation of vehicle registration law, according to WZTV.
Rucker was released shortly after on a $10,500 bond and his lawyer released the following statement on his behalf:
“Darius Rucker is fully cooperating with authorities related to misdemeanor charges.”
We still don’t know what the drugs he had on him were. Tennessee (outside of Nashville) has not legalized or decriminalized marijuana yet so that’s the most likely case and I think most people are expecting this to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist for a bag of weed… but who knows?
Well, I did say most people would hope for that because there’s at least one who seems quite happy that Darius wound up behind bars for a couple of hours.
Kate Quigley, the comedian, actress, and ex-girlfriend of Darius has taken to X to make a few statements that imply quite a bit about the seemingly lovable guy we hear sing “Wagon Wheel” 400 thousand times each year.
The two dated for about a year back in 2020 after Rucker split up with his wife of 20 years.
