NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - The case against singer Michelle Branch was dismissed Wednesday at the request of the state according to the Davidson County Clerk’s Office.

Singer Michelle Branch was arrested in Nashville on August 11 after slapping her husband, according to police.

Police responded to the 4300 block of Chickering Lane at about 2 a.m. Thursday regarding a domestic disturbance.

Branch told police she and her husband, Patrick Carney, drummer of the Black Keys, were having marital issues and had been arguing.

The argument escalated, and Branch admitted to slapping Carney in the face, police said.

Branch was charged with domestic assault and taken into custody without incident.

Officials have not said why the case has been dropped at this time.

Branch is known for her hit single “Everywhere” and for being a member of “The Wreckers.”
