According to Taste of Country.com, Rodney Atkins was arrested on November 21st for domestic assault, in what allegedly resulted from Atkins trying to smother his wife with a pillow and throwing her down a hallway. Atkins, who appeared at last summer’s Greeley Stampede, was released on $2500 bail, and has since filed for divorce.


Atkins’ wife reportedly called 911 at 7:47AM on Nov. 21 to tell police about the assault, saying that the violence occurred in their home after they had been arguing all night. His wife said the ‘Take a Back Road’ singer “had been drinking alcohol all night and was intoxicated” — and that it happened in front of their 10-year-old son, Elijah.
