Hank Williams - Hank Williams' Daughter Arrested For Dui

Hank Williams' daughter Jett Williams has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol (Dui).

The 61 year old was pulled over by police on Tuesday (25Feb14) in Lebanon, Tennessee after cops spotted Williams swerving between lanes at around 2.30am local time.

Officers noticed she smelled of alcohol and was slurring her speech and she was asked to complete a field sobriety test, which she subsequently failed.

She was taken into custody and booked for Dui, while she was also given citations for not wearing a seat belt and not carrying proof of insurance.

She was released on $1,000 (£625) bail.

Williams was born just five days after her famous father passed away in 1953 from heart failure exacerbated by prescription pills and alcohol.
