NASHVILLE, TN (CNN) – Country superstar Alan Jackson is famous alright, but that didn’t help his 20-year-old daughter, Alexandra, when she was arrested on Wednesday.

According to Metro Nashville Police, Alexandra was charged with assault, underage consumption of alcohol, and resisting arrest during a traffic stop. The 20-year-old was riding shotgun in a Range Rover that a police officer observed was speeding, and when the officer pulled the car over, it was discovered that Alexandra “had consumed a large amount of alcohol.”

Police say Alexandra became “visibly irate” while the officer spoke with the driver of the vehicle, and began making demands as she got out of the car.

The officer requested that she return to the vehicle, but according to police that only angered Alexandra more. After being threatened with the possibility of being arrested if she didn’t get back inside the car, Alexandra struck the officer in his chest.

When police tried to arrest her and take her into custody, she put up enough of a fight to require the officer to call for backup. Alexandra eventually complied with the arrest, but police say that while she was being booked she “made several statements to the arresting officer” that her dad Alan Jackson “would do anything” she wanted him to do.

Police then warned Alexandra about making or attempting to bribe an officer. She’s next due in court on September 23.

As of now, Alan Jackson’s reps have no comment.
