Glen Campbell Gets 10-Day Jail Sentence

Two days after appearing at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Glen Campbell was formally sentenced Tuesday (June 15) to 10 days in jail for extreme drunken driving and leaving the scene of a November 2003 accident near his Phoenix home. As part of a plea bargain announced last month, Campbell, 68, will be allowed to leave the jail for 12 hours each day as part of a work furlough. He was placed on two years probation and must perform 75 hours of community service. During a press conference at the CMA Music Festival, Campbell talked briefly about his arrest, noting that the accident took place after he consumed two alcoholic drinks. “I had not drank in 15 years,” he said. “Totally unknown to me, I blacked out, and so you can imagine that Glen Campbell will never run any more whiskey down his neck.”
