Country singer Chris Cagle cited for misdemeanor assault

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police cited country music singer Chris Cagle for misdemeanor assault after an incident at a nightclub.

Police say Cagle had just finished performing a benefit show when a woman became belligerent when he refused to sign additional autographs for her after signing several. Sgt. Mark Robinson says the 39-year-old singer punched the woman's boyfriend in the face early Thursday morning.

Cagle could not be reached for comment Thursday. The singer has produced two gold albums and his 2002 single "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out" reached No. 1 on Billboard's country music chart.

The benefit raised money for the Arizona's Children Association as part of radio station's annual charity drive.
