Brad Paisley has been pranking tourmate Jewel for weeks now, jokes that he thought were done with after their last gig in San Antonio, Texas last Saturday.
He thought wrong.
After Brad and his crew landed in Nashville early on Sunday morning via private jet, they were greeted by two police cars flashing their lights. An officer asked for the country star to step out of the plane so he could speak with him, and told the others to remain onboard the jet.
"We haave warrants out of Texas and Tennessee for you," the retired cop says. "We’ll get you downtown and you can get your lawyer."
"Okay," replied Brad as he’s placed into handcuffs, adding, "You’ve gotta be kidding."
"Do I look like I’m kidding?" the tough officer responds.
"Well, no you don’t," Brad admits, "but I’ve never done anything wrong in my life."
When he’s placed in the back of the police vehicle and told that Jewel has charged him with 42 counts of excessive noodling on the guitar, Brad realizes the joke is truly on him.
"This is as good as it gets," he tells the camera. "I didn’t think for a second it was a real bust, by the way."
Suuuure Brad, whatever you say!
