Late Saturday night, 5/5, Jake Owen posted a photo to his twitter feed with the caption “I got arrested in my hometown!”  Jake then took back to twitter to say “I was wearing an old man mask and the sheriff decided to rip me out of Steak And Shake and embarrass me in front of my family. Classic.”   Jake was obviously not too happy with his hometown officers, as he had this to say after the ordeal “You give a guy a gun and a badge and he thinks he’s John Wayne. Thanks Indian River County Sheriffs Office. Unreal.”  Jake played Runaway Country Music Festival in Melbourne FL earlier in the day so it’s no surprise he decided to spend a little family time in Vero.  Jake took to twitter once more to say “I’m calling it a night. My mom cried. My Dad was embarrassed.”

Hopefully no charges were filed since Jake did get released by officers.
