Michael Ray has issued an apology to his fans following his Wednesday morning (Dec. 20) DUI arrest.
In a statement released to Sounds Like Nashville via his publicist, Ray expressed his deepest regret following the incident, which landed him in a Florida jail on $6,000 bond.
“I want to apologize to my fans, family, and my hometown community for placing myself in this situation,” he shared. “I am so very sorry for the disappointment these events have caused everyone. I know it will take time; however, I will do everything I can to rebuild your trust.”
The “Get To You” singer, 29, was charged with driving under the influence and possession of cannabis oil, according to a police report.
Authorities were called to the scene of a fast food restaurant after Ray, whose legal name is Michael Ray Roach, was involved in a minor auto collision.
“At approximately 3:34 a.m., Eustis Police were dispatched to the McDonald’s … in reference to a minor vehicle crash without injuries in the drive-thru line. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the at-fault driver … Michael Ray Roach, who was operating a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. During the crash investigation, the officer observed indications of possible impairment from Mr. Roach,” the police department said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.
Ray allegedly failed a number of sobriety tests and turned down a breathalyzer test at the scene. The police report states that responding officers found a bottle containing a brownish liquid and that it tested positive for cannabis oil containing THC.
Ray is best known for songs like “Think A Little Less” and “Kiss You in the Morning.” His current single, “Get To You,” is climbing the country radio charts now.
