Campbell faces multiple charges

From Associated Press

Country singer Glen Campbell, whose hits include "Rhinestone Cowboy," allegedly struck a car while driving drunk and left the scene, then later kneed a police officer while demanding to see the police chief, authorities in Phoenix said Tuesday.

He was freed early Tuesday on $2,000 bail on charges of extreme drunken driving and hit and run. He also was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer during the booking procedures.

Campbell, 67, was arrested Monday at his home after a collision at a Phoenix intersection in which nobody was hurt, police Sgt. Randy Force said. A witness had followed the car, called police on a cell phone and directed them to the home, Force said.
