    Wynonna was pulled over by Nashville police while speeding in her Land Rover. According to the arrest report, Judd smelled of liquor, had dilated pupils, and couldn’t remember how many drinks she’d had. When she consented to a Breathalyzer test, her blood alcohol level was .175, more than double the .08 minimum for a drunk driving charge. Wynonna is believed to be the only country star arrested that began singing to her fellow arrestees in the open booking area at the Nashville jail.
