Hunt, who was the only person in the vehicle, also admitted to drinking recently, according to police. Hunt was arrested Thursday morning about 6:30 a.m., booked into jail and released from jail on a $2,500 bond, according to WKRN-TV.

The report also indicates that when officers asked Hunt for his driver's license, he tried to give them his passport and a credit card while his license sat on his lap.

The police report states that Hunt's blood alcohol level was.173, which is more than twice the legal limit. He is scheduled to appear in court in Tennessee on January 17, 2020.

With over 2.2 million followers on Instagram and a huge fanbase, it should come as no surprise that fans are already posting comments on the singer's social media account. "Your not setting a very good example". He is slated to perform at the NASCAR Cup Series Awards in Nashville on December 5.
