‘Drinkin’ Too Much’ singer Sam Hunt is ‘arrested for a DUI after swerving and having two empty beer cans in his car’

COUNTRY crooner Sam Hunt was charged for allegedly driving drunk with "two empty beer cans" beside him today, reports say.

The 'Drinkin' Too Much' singer was taken into custody on Thursday when he was spotted driving the wrong way down a road in Nashville, Tennessee, according to WKRN.

Hunt, 34, was reportedly booked by local cops on charges of driving under the influence and having an open container in his car.

The 'Cop Car' musician had a blood alcohol content of .173 (the legal limit is .08) and apparently smelled like an "alcoholic beverage," according to the arrest warrant.

According to court documents, bleary-eyed Hunt admitted to having a few drinks "recently" before getting behind the wheel.

“There was an obvious odor consistent with alcoholic beverage coming from the defendant as well as red bloodshot and watery eyes," stated the report.

"There were two empty beers in the vehicle next to the driver."

The document also indicated that Hunt showed "numerous signs of impairment" and reportedly tried to hand over his credit card instead of his license, which was on his lap.

WKRN shared footage of Hunter being released from jail this morning on a $2,500 bond, stating that a court date was set for Jan. 17, 2020.

Cops responded to an initial report of a driver was the wrong way down the lanes of Ellington Parkway in the early hours of this morning.

There was an obvious odor consistent with alcoholic beverage coming from the defendant as well as red bloodshot and watery eyes.

Arrest warrant

The news comes after Hunt recently acknowledged that a John Mayer song may have saved his relationship with his longtime love and wife, Hannah Lee Fowler, 31.

Speaking to Taste of Country Nights hosts about Mayer's classic 'Edge of Desire,' Hunt said: "If I ever hear that song, I think about that moment.

"She was through with me, she was [like] 'I'm done.' And I was taking her back to her car, and that song came on.

"Then there was just something; some tension came into the car that was like, OK, there's something here. … I've got to give him a little credit for that."

The pair have had an on/off relationship since 2008, with Hunt having to win back the nurse with a series of love songs, E! News reported in 2014.

The 'Body Like a Back Road' singer who recently dropped new album “Kinfolks,” found success with his album Montevallo, which was named after Lee Fowler's hometown.

“I didn’t actually live in that town,” he said. “I had never visited Montevallo, but right before I left to go to Nashville, I met a girl from there.

"A lot of the experiences I had with her, and the relationship I had with her, that inspired a lot of the songwriting on the album.”

Hunt and Lee Fowler have yet to publicly comment on the DUI charges.

The Sun reached out to Hunt's management team for comment on Thursday.
