Wilson, 45, of Lebanon, was charged with breach of peace. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court in Enfield, Connecticut on Sept. 13.
According to Connecticut police, troopers were dispatched to a plane's portable bridge about 7:20 p.m. after a call about a minor disturbance on an incoming flight. Wilson had been causing problems related to a passenger in a plane bathroom, according to Trooper Kelly Grant.
"While interviewing the accused on the jetway, she became belligerent toward the troopers and caused a disturbance," police said in a report. Wilson was taken into custody; she later posted $1,000 bail.
Her lawyer, Robert Britt, declined to comment Wednesday afternoon.
"Because the matter is pending in court, I don't feel it appropriate to make any comments at this time," he said.
Wilson won a Grammy for her 2004 country hit, "Redneck Woman." The Illinois native also is known for her No. 1 albums, "All Jacked Up" and "One of the Boys," according to The Boot, a country music news website.
Her other albums include "Here for the Party" and "Ready to Get Rowdy."
It's unclear why Wilson was in Connecticut. She launched a tour in June, but her next concert isn't scheduled until Sept. 1 in Ohio.
