According to NBC affiliate WSMV, Darius Rucker was apprehended in Williamson County, Tennessee, on February 1st.
The 57-year-old country singer and Hootie & the Blowfish frontman faced three separate misdemeanor charges upon booking, including two counts of simple possession/casual exchange of a controlled substance and one count of violating the state’s vehicle registration law.
The musician was released on the day of posting a $10,500 bond.
Mark Puryear, attorney for Rucker, informs YEPPOST.com that the singer "is actively collaborating with authorities regarding misdemeanor charges."
Currently, the reasons behind the arrest of the "Have a Good Time" singer are not clear.
Rucker is set to take the stage in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry House on Friday, Feb. 2. He has two additional shows scheduled at the same venue on Feb. 6 and March 12 before embarking on a European tour. It remains unknown whether his recent arrest will affect the Feb. 2 concert.
Later this year, the Grammy winner is scheduled to join his Hootie & the Blowfish bandmates for their 2024 "Summer Camp With Trucks Tour." Revealed in late 2023, the band will launch their tour on May 30 in Dallas, Texas, and travel throughout the United States before concluding on September 19 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
