‘Rose Garden’ Hitmaker Lynn Anderson Arrested for DUI
Country singer Lynn Anderson -- best known for Grammy-winning hit 'Rose Garden' -- was arrested Thursday night (Sept. 11) and charged with a DUI.
Anderson was involved in a crash around 9PM in Nashville, and the responding offer says she showed "signs of impairment." The warrant reveals Anderson admitted to drinking alcohol and taking prescription medication.
The country singer-songwriter was quick to address her actions in a press release, saying, "I apologize for the choices I made and subsequent actions on Thursday evening that ultimately resulted in the accident. By the grace of God, I am very grateful that no one was injured as a result. I am committed to the accountable steps that I will be facing on the road to recovery and am deeply sorry for anyone that I have harmed along this path."
This isn't the first time Anderson has faced DUI charges. She was charged in 2004 while in Texas -- authorities found her passed out in her car on the side of the highway. She also had a stint with shoplifting in 2005, as well as a charge for battery of a police officer. In 2006, Anderson rear-ended a vehicle in New Mexico. The '70s hitmaker spent some time at the Betty Ford Center, a treatment facility.
Anderson, 66, was released on a $5,000 bond Friday morning. She is scheduled for a court appearance Nov. 20.
