Alexandra Jane Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of country star Alan Jackson, found herself under arrest after striking a police officer and invoking her father’s name during a traffic stop in Nashville on Wednesday (Aug. 28).
Jackson (dressed in pink above) was a passenger in a car pulled over by Metro Nashville police, the AP reports. According to a police affidavit, she was irate and refused to stay inside the vehicle. The police say Jackson raised her hand to an officer, striking the officer in the chest.
The affidavit continues, adding that Jackson resisted when officers attempted to handful her, later telling police she had been drinking. During the booking process at the jail, she also told the officer that her father “would do anything I wanted him to do.” WSMV-TV reports she was released early Wednesday, after being charged with assault, underage drinking and resisting arrest.
As of press time, Alan Jackson hasn’t made a public comment on his daughter’s behavior.
