Darius Rucker Faces Misdemeanor Charges: Full Cooperation with Authorities
Country music artist Darius Rucker, 57, is fully cooperating with authorities after being arrested on misdemeanor charges. Rucker’s attorney confirmed his cooperation in a statement to PEOPLE. The musician faced two counts of simple possession/casual exchange of a controlled substance and one count of violating Tennessee’s vehicle registration law, as confirmed by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office.
Rucker was taken into custody by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office and booked on these misdemeanor charges. He was subsequently released on $10,500 bond and is no longer in custody. The specific circumstances leading to Rucker’s arrest remain undisclosed. TMZ, the first to report the incident, suggests that police cited expired tags on his car as a contributing factor.
The country star’s most recent album, “Carolyn’s Boy,” released in October, is his first solo album in six years. Dedicated to his late mother, Carolyn, who passed away in 1992, the album features deeply personal songs. Despite the legal situation, Rucker remains focused on his music and honoring his mother’s memory.
