Early Wednesday morning, the daughter of country music singer Alan Jackson was arrested. According to WSMV-TV, Alexandra Jane Jackson, 20, was arrested on charges of underage consumption, assault, and resisting arrest.
Police pulled over the vehicle that Alexandra Jackson was a passenger in at the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Wedgewood Avenue in Nashville. The driver was tailgating and speeding and police determined that she had "consumed a large amount of alcohol."
According to police, when she exited the vehicle, she became angry towards the officer and struck them in the chest multiple times. She brought up her father, Alan Jackson, name by saying he would do anything to get her out of trouble.
Alexandra Jackson bailed out of jail just before 5 a.m. Wednesday. Her court date has been set for Sept. 23 in General Sessions Court.
Alexandra, also known as Ali, was involved in a social media hoax earlier this year. A Facebook page was set up under Alan Jackson's name with a post claiming that she was in a car crash. Alan Jackson's publicist confirmed that the story was false in Music Row magazine.
This isn't the first time a member of the Jackson family has been arrested. Mattie Denise Jackson was arrested for DUI in 2012 on 21st Avenue South and was convicted of misdemeanor reckless driving.
