Country singer Alan Jackson’s daughter took a page out of Reese Witherspoon’s handbook when she was arrested on Wednesday, dropping her dad’s name to the seemingly indifferent police officer.
Alexandra Jackson, 20, was a passenger in a Range Rover pulled over by the cops in Nashville, Tennessee on August 28 and, like Reese, was uncooperative and ultimately arrested on charges of assault, underage drinking and resisting arrest.
According to KLTV.com police determined Alexandra had consumed a large amount of alcohol and when she exited the vehicle she was “angry over the traffic stop” and “raised her hand in an angry manner toward the officer.”
She reportedly hit the officer in the chest and then was told she was going to be placed under arrest so she hit the officer again and ran to her car to try and get away.
When Reese’s husband, Jim Toth, was popped for DUI in Atlanta earlier in the summer, and she was a passenger in his car, she drunkenly mouthed off to the cops, asking them, “Do you know my name?” and refusing to follow their instructions to remain in the car, telling the officers she was a “U.S. citizen” and she was allowed to “stand on American gound.”
When she was taken into custody Alexander told the officers that her father would “do anything I wanted him to” to get her out of jail.
