Rodney Atkins Beats Domestic Assault Charge from Last November!!
Rodney Atkins has avoided jail time stemming from his November 21 arrest for an alleged domestic assault with his soon-to-be ex-wife Tammy Jo. She claimed he tried to smother her with a pillow during an alcohol-fueled fight and then threw her down a hallway. Atkins denied those charges and filed for divorce after being released from jail on $2,500 bond. According to The Tennessean, Rodney went through court-ordered assessments for anger management, alcohol and drug use and passed each one. A Williamson County, TN judge officially retired the charges against Atkins, and they will be expunged from his record. Atkins released a statement exclusively to The Tennessean saying, "I am so thankful for all those that chose to withhold judgment while keeping my family and I in their prayers,” Atkins said. “God Bless. Onward and upward.”
