Wrath of Glenn

busted Glenn Campbell mugshot

Subject: Glenn Campbell

Charges: In November 2003, country singer Glenn Campbell was arrested by Arizona authorities for drunk driving and hit and run. He also was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer.

According to police reports, the busted singer ran his BMW into another car at a Phoenix intersection, and although he left the scene of the accident, authorities found him at his home nearby. Officers smelled alcohol on the singer's breath and noted that he looked drunk.

Campbell, 67, was freed on $2,000 bail on charges of extreme drunken driving and hit and run. While being processed at a police station, and minutes away from being released to waiting friends and family, the singer became angry and kneed an officer in the thigh. That prompted police to arrest him again, on suspicion of assault.

Date: Mugshot taken on November 24, 2003

Verdict: In May 2004, the country star pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and leaving the scene of an accident, for which he served 10 nights in jail in July 2004.
