Daughter of Alan Jackson Arrested For Assaulting a Police Officer

Alexandra "Ali" Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of country's Alan Jackson, was arrested early Wednesday morning during a traffic stop in Nashville.

Jackson was a passenger in a car that was pulled over by police for speeding and tailgating. While talking to the driver of the car, Jackson exited the vehicle and started making demands of the officer. Her actions got more animated until she got to the point where she raised a hand to the officer, hit him in the chest and ran away to try and get into the car.

The officer, who reported that she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, told Jackson she was under arrest at which point she began throwing her father's name around. The warrant on her arrest also says that she resisted the officer's attempt to handcuff her.

Jackson is charged with underage drinking, resisting arrest and assaulting an officer. She is due in court on September 23.

Alan Jackson said through his publicist that he had no comment on the situation.
