Gretchen Wilson discussed her arrest in Connecticut last week, telling Taste of Country: "I'm saddened by the whole thing. I don't know that I could say — I mean, I'm embarrassed that that situation got to where it was, but not personally."
A verbal and physical altercation took place on an airplane headed for Connecticut, allegedly over the use of the bathroom. Two days after the arrest, Wilson thanked fans for their patience and said: "The truth will prevail."
She now says, "It's been really frustrating for me not to be able to talk about it, because people who know me know that I just wanna get it straight. I'm reading all of these headlines and am like, 'Oh gosh, it's so wrong. It's all so wrong!'"
Reports indicated that Wilson was booked and charged with breach of peace. She had no trouble making a scheduled private show at a nearby casino the next day.
