Complaint filed against Hank Jr.

Hank Williams Jr. voluntarily surrendered himself to the Shelby County Sheriff’s office in Memphis, April 4, after being notified that a formal complaint had been filed against him. Hank Jr. has been accused by Holly Hornbeak, a waitress at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, of harassment, which she said took place on March 18. The singer was in the city to look after his two daughters, Hilary and Holly, who had been hospitalized after an auto accident, and he continues to stay there while Hilary recovers from her injuries. Hank’s publicist issued a statement saying that the waitress’ lawyer sent a letter three days after the incident demanding an “outlandish amount of money.” Hank would not agree to that, and Hornbeak filed an official complaint. He maintains his innocence and is confident that the matter will be resolved.
