Wynonna Judd's Daughter, Grace Kelley, Charged With Indecent Exposure in MillbrookSource: Elmore County Sheriff's Office

Country music lineage can't skirt the law—Wynonna Judd's daughter, Grace Kelley, learned this first-hand after a public indecency arrest in Millbrook, Alabama. According to the Elmore County Sheriff's Office, the 27-year-old was charged with indecent exposure and obstructing governmental operations on April 5, as WSFA reported. Kelley's bout with the law landed her a $1,000 bond while she finds herself confined within the stark walls of an Elmore County jail cell.

Millbrook Police Department's encounter with Kelley unfolded near a bustling intersection, where she allegedly exposed herself and took a defiant seat as officers attempted to intervene, and she went as far as refusing to identify herself to the arresting officers she was sitting on the roadside edge after the incident at I-65 and Highway 14, refusing to comply, as reported by The Wetumpka Herald. "We didn't know who it was when we arrested her, not that it would have mattered," stated Millbrook police chief P.K. Johnson.

Kelley's legal skirmishes aren't a novel excerpt in her personal history book—back in 2017, she was arrested in Tennessee on charges related to methamphetamine and evading a court-mandated drug recovery program. With her latest incident putting her back in the spotlight, TODAY.com sought a statement from Wynonna Judd. In a 2020 appearance on Fox Nation’s "The Pursuit! with John Rich", the country singer reflected on her daughter's turbulent path, saying that Kelley is "the strongest Judd woman in our 'herstory,'" implying a mighty resilience derived from trials endured, as TODAY.com detailed.

Further details of Kelley's arrest remain under wraps as the Millbrook Police Department and court system sort through the unfolding legal narrative.
