Alexandra Jane Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of singer Alan Jackson, was arrested in Nashville on Tuesday night (Aug. 27) for allegedly hitting a police officer and consuming alcohol under the legal age.
According to the police affidavit, the officer was speaking with the driver and determined that Ali had been drinking. Ali then exited the car and was “visibly irate,” making demands of the officer. After being asked to return to her car, she allegedly struck the officer in the chest and resisted his attempt to put her in the patrol car.
Later she admitted to consuming three drinks. The affidavit also notes that Ali told the officer that her father “would do anything I wanted him to do” and was warned about saying anything that could be considered an attempt to bribe.
Police charged her with underage drinking, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. She was released on a $35,000 bond and a court date is set for Sept. 23.
Yesterday, her father, Alan, also celebrated the release of his new collection, The Bluegrass Album, with a special live show at Nashville’s The Station Inn.
This is not the Jackson family’s first brush with Nashville law enforcement. In September 2012, Alan’s eldest daughter, Mattie, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
