WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. – Grammy-winning country music star Gretchen Wilson has been arrested at a Connecticut airport after what was described as a minor disturbance on an incoming flight.

Wilson, of Lebanon, Tennessee, is expected in court Wednesday. Her case was not listed on the docket and it couldn’t be determined if she has a lawyer.

She won the Best Female Country Vocal Performance Grammy in 2004 for the song “Redneck Woman.” She was scheduled to perform an invitation-only show Wednesday at the Mohegan Sun casino.
