Gretchen Wilson, the country singer behind hits including 2004’s “Redneck Woman,” was arrested after an incident on an airplane, Tuesday, PEOPLE confirms.

Connecticut State Police were dispatched to a “minor disturbance” caused by Wilson on an incoming flight at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut, according to an arrest record provided to PEOPLE by Connecticut State Police.

When authorities interviewed Wilson on the jetway, she “became belligerent” and “caused a disturbance,” police said. Wilson, 45, was taken into custody for breach of peace, and her bond was set at $1,000.

Wilson is expected in court on Wednesday, according to the arrest report. It is unclear if she has obtained an attorney and her rep did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
