Country singer Rodney Atkins was arrested in late November for domestic assault after an argument with his wife allegedly turned physical at their Tennessee home. According to reports, Atkins' wife, Tammy, called 911 near 8 o'clock in the morning on November 21st after the couple had been arguing the whole night. Tammy Atkins then told police that her husband had attempted to smother her with a pillow and even grabbed her face and threw her down a hallway--all in front of the couple's 10-year-old son. Atkins' wife insisted that the country music star had been consuming alcohol all night to the point of intoxication. Atkins was arrested that morning and held at a nearby jail until he was released after posting $2,500 bail. Atkins, however, insists that his wife lied to police about the incident, claiming that the argument never turned physical. Atkins has since filed for divorce. No word has been given on when Atkins is expected to appear in court or what penalties he might face if he is convicted.
