How embarrassing! Johnny Cash’s 44-year-old son was arrested at a Canadian airport after he drunkenly stripped naked in the terminal, according to a new report. The late country music legend is likely rolling in his grave.
John Carter Cash, 44, was returning home to Tennessee from a hunting trip in Newfoundland, Canada on Oct. 28, when he allegedly stripped naked in an airport terminal while waiting to catch a flight home. John, the only son of Johnny Cash and June Carter, was subsequently arrested, a new report claims.

Police reportedly were called to Deer Lake Airport at 2:10 P.M. when a man, who was later identified as John Carter Cash, was seen taking his clothes off in the terminal, Daily Mail reports.
By the time authorities arrived on the scene, however, security had already convinced John to put his clothes back on. They also allegedly realized he was drunk.
John was held in police custody until he was sober. Thus, he missed his flight. But because he had no prior record, police reportedly let him go without pressing formal charges.
Johnny Cash Battled Alcoholism During His Lifetime
Unfortunately, this may be case of history repeating itself. Johnny Cash had a problem with alcohol during his lifetime.
Johnny was in and out of rehab for most of his career. The late country music legend last went to rehab in 1992 at a center in Loma Linda, California. Johnny also followed him to the facility for treatment as well.
Johnny Cash died in 2003, four months after June Carter passed away.
We certainly hope Johnny finds the help he needs and doesn’t let something like this happen again.
