Chris Cagle Innocent

Country star Chris Cagle was acquitted of domestic violence in a Nashville courthouse July 24 in connection to a May 28 altercation with his girlfriend, Jennifer Tant, following a night at a local bar.

Cagle told police he pushed Tant after she tried to hit him with an umbrella.

"It’s a shame these charges were ever brought. Period," Cagle attorney Bill Ramsey said in a statement. "Chris is relieved the accuracy of the matter has been revealed and the ordeal is over."

Cagle still faces a September assault trial in Tucson, Ariz., in connection with an incident outside of a nightclub.
