Arkansas Native Glen Campbell Arrested In Phoenix

November 25, 2003 - Posted at 8:09 a.m. CDT

 

PHOENIX, AZ - Police in Arizona say singer Glen Campbell was taken into custody on suspicion of drunken driving after he left the scene of a minor vehicle accident.

Campbell, a native of Delight, Arkansas, was also held on suspicion of hit and run, and aggrevated assault on a police officer.  He was released early this morning without being formally charged.  Phoenix police say that as Campbell was being processed at the police station, he kneed a sergeant in the thigh.  No one was hurt in the accident.

A witness followed Campbell's BMW and police stopped him.  Officers say Campbell appeared intoxicated and he's charged with "extreme" drunken driving.

The 67-year-old Campbell told the Associated Press in an interview last month that he'd quit drinking and using drugs, calling them "a tool of the devil."

Phoenix police do not release the results of blood-alcohol tests.  But, "extreme" drunken driving applies when results are above .15 percent.  The legal limit for drivers in Arizona is .08 percent.
