Glen Campbell Says Sorry After Arrest

LATEST: Country singer GLEN CAMPBELL has apologised after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving, hit and run, and assaulting a police officer.

The 67-year-old RHINESTONE COWBOY hitmaker was freed early yesterday (25NOV03) on $2,000 (GBP1,176) bail following his arrest in Phoenix, Arizona.

Campbell says in a statement, "Yesterday I was arrested and put in jail. Even at my age, I learned a valuable lesson. I apologise to my wife, my family, my friends and my fans."

The Arkansas native was arrested on Monday (24NOV03) at his home after a collision at a Phoenix intersection, says police sergeant RANDY FORCE. No-one was hurt, but a witness followed Campbell's car, called police and directed them to his home, says Force.

Breath tests showed Campbell had a blood-alcohol level of 0.20, according to court documents. The legal limit is 0.08 per cent.

Police say Campbell had posted bail and was minutes from being released when he became angry and kneed sergeant BILL NILES in the thigh, demanding to see the police chief.

Niles was unhurt, but Campbell was taken to jail and appeared in Superior Court just before midnight.

Court commissioner STEVE KUPISZEWSKI placed Campbell on supervised release, requiring him to check in periodically with court monitors, who could test him for alcohol and drugs.
