NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The 20-year-old daughter of country star Alan Jackson has been charged with assault, underage drinking and resisting arrest. She is accused of striking a police officer and then invoking her father’s name during a traffic stop in Nashville.
Alexandra Jane Jackson was a passenger in a car pulled over by Metro Nashville police on Wednesday. According to a police affidavit, Jackson was irate and refused to stay in the car. Police say Jackson raised her hand to an officer, then struck the officer in the chest.
The affidavit says Jackson resisted when officers went to handcuff her and she later told police she had been drinking. As she was being booked into the jail, she told the officer that her father “would do anything I wanted him to do.” WSMV-TV reports she was released early Wednesday.
A spokeswoman for Alan Jackson says there’s no comment.
