Renowned musician Darius Rucker faced a minor setback on Thursday as he was arrested in Williamson County, Tennessee, for an alleged misdemeanor drug offense. The 57-year-old artist, best known for his contributions to Hootie & the Blowfish, was quick to cooperate with authorities, according to a statement from his attorney.

Darius Rucker was taken into custody on 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. However, the exact nature of the controlled substance was not disclosed by authorities.

The country star was subsequently booked on these three misdemeanor charges but was promptly released after posting a $10,500 bond. The circumstances leading to Rucker’s arrest remain unclear, though TMZ’s report suggested that the musician allegedly had expired tags on his vehicle.

In October, Darius Rucker released his latest album, ‘Carolyn’s Boy,’ marking his first solo endeavor in six years. The album, filled with deeply personal songs, pays homage to his late mother, Carolyn, who passed away in 1992. Rucker expressed his ongoing devotion to her memory, stating, “She’s been gone for so long, but I still think about her every day. She was my biggest champion… I hope I’m making her proud.”

Despite this legal hiccup, December saw Darius Rucker being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During the ceremony, he spoke fondly of his three children, Carolyn, Daniella, and Jack, emphasizing their significance in his life.

“Cary, Dani, and Jack are my heart, they’re my soul,” Rucker remarked. “They’re everything to me, and everything I do is for them.”

In his speech, Rucker acknowledged the profound impact of fatherhood, expressing, “As great as all this stuff is, it’s not as cool as being your dad, and I mean that. I love you guys so much.”

Back in June 2023, the “Wagon Wheel” singer shared with PEOPLE his commitment to staying connected with his children while on tour. He highlighted the role of technology in facilitating regular communication, stating, “When phones and FaceTime came into play, it made it a lot easier. [I] just try to call every day.”

Rucker also elaborated on his touring schedule, noting, “The way we tour is great. We only tour on the weekend, so it’s three days a week, and the other four days [I’m] pretty much home, so that makes it a lot easier.”

Despite the recent legal incident, Rucker remains focused on his family and musical endeavors.
