Country singer Darius Rucker, known for his time with Hootie & the Blowfish, was recently arrested in Tennessee for a minor drug offense. The nature of the charge suggests it was essentially an alleged exchange.
The incident occurred on Thursday in Williamson County, where Rucker resides. He was photographed for a mug shot by the local Sheriff’s Department and faced three different misdemeanor charges.
Darius Rucker was taken into custody for two instances of simple possession or casual exchange of a controlled substance, as well as one count of violating the state’s vehicle registration law.
As for the specific Department of Motor Vehicles regulation that Darius is believed to have violated, it appears that he allowed the tags on his car to expire.
Darius Rucker was taken to jail around 10 AM PT and was released approximately an hour later. It has been confirmed that Darius posted bail and is no longer detained.
The specific circumstances leading to his arrest remain unclear at this time. Efforts are being made to contact the police for more details.
Attempts have also been made to reach out to Darius’ representatives for a statement, but there has been no response as of yet.
