In an incident his father could probably have turned into a pretty good country song, Mounties arrested an allegedly drunken John Carter Cash after he stripped down to his underwear at a Canadian airport on Monday. By the time officers arrived at Newfoundland's Deer Lake Airport, security personnel had persuaded the 44-year-old singer and music producer to put his clothes back on, reports the Telegram. Cash, the only child Johnny Cash had with June Carter Cash, had been on a hunting trip and ended up missing his flight. He was taken to a police station to sober up, but officers decided not to place charges because he was cooperative and has no criminal record, CTV reports. (More Johnny Cash stories.)
