Kellie Pickler's Dad Busted Again!

TMZ has obtained the mugshot of Clyde "Bo" Pickler Jr., father of "American Idol" Kellie Pickler, who was arrested (again) recently on several larceny charges.

Bo Pickler was allegedly stealing old, run-down cars and taking them to salvage yards to sell them. Pickler has been charged with three felony charges of stealing a motor vehicle, and one charge of obtaining property through false pretenses. He is being held on a $26,000 bond in the Stanly County Jail.

Why don't you all leave Pickler alone and go pick on Rosie O'D? Now there's a pig that deserves some name bashing!!!!!

Kellie....run, run like the wind! I know he's her father BUT he's nothing but trouble and WILL bring that girl right down. Any man can have a child, but not everyone can be a father and parent. She obviously owes him nothing because her grandfather was the one who raised her. It's evident that her "father" doesn't learn his lesson, and refuses to change, even for the sake of his relationship with his daughter. And I suppose he'll expect her to post his bail too! Take your granpa and move far away from this very dysfunctional man and live your life and enjoy whatever success you can.

I think Kelly Pickler is a "great" singer, and I can't say the same for "most" of the Idol winners! She and Carrie Underwood are the only ones who have impressed me in the slightest! All the rest are mediocre at best! For the most part, it's a popularity contest! Kelly has no control over the actions of her father, and should certainly not be judged by his wicked ways! I've been a professional singer/songwriter/musician for longer than Kelly and Carrie have been alive collectively, and I know when I hear bad notes! I haven't heard "any" from either of them! I'm sorry that Kelly is having to take the brunt of this! Keep up the good work, Kelly and Carrie! Michael T. Lawson

No one have control on what others do out of their lives. This is true about Kellie's parents, and immediate family for that matter. Kellie is the only one that matter, what she does with her body is entirely her business because the only thing that should affect us is her talent to sing, and the girl can sing. Focus, Focus, Focus! Let's start with ourselves.

kellie has a great future in country music...with parents like hers..who needs ememies?
she really needs to distance herself from them....and as far as "did she or didnt she" does anyone really care? its her body and if she did,then so be it. if she didnt then thats her choice too

I agree with those that think your parents should not be a reflection of who you are.
Kellie is not the only person in America that has had a breast enhancement. If you have the money and can make any changes in your body that make you feel more attractive or more self-confident in the public eye, GO FOR IT! Now, I won't have the same thought if she shaves her head.
What is the update on her grandfather....he seemed to love her soooooo much!
We knew her father was a loser when she was on American Idol. We voted because we liked her and what she brought to the stage.
Keep up the good work Kellie.

HEY EVERYBODY -- GIVE HER A BREAK !! -- she has already beat the odds -- what usually happens to a young child left by the mother and an idot for a father -- they usually end up in counseling for years with all sorts of "issues" that can't be reversed! The grandparents must have done a superior job of giving her what she needs -- she's making it and that's more than most of you can say !! ..... GO KELLI .....Good Luck Always -- you deserve it !

If you are going to tag every person whose parents are stupid, ugly or just plain dumb, your list would go on forever. Best example: Rudy Guiliani. His dad was a small time hood who served time. That made Rudy want to become a better person, and he did. I'm not a Kelli fan, but JeezLouise.....get over the dirt slinging and listen to the singing!

#34, your comment was so totally incorrect. Carries CD has sold more, faster than any county CD. This was printed in the country music magazines. get your facts before opening mouth (or in this case, computer/keyboard). Comparing Kellie to Carrie is rediculous. That would be like comparing Bo Bice to Chris Daughtry. (Chris being soooo much better, just look at the concerts and CD sales). I like Carrie and Kellie both but they sing different kinds of country music

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU GO KELLY THINKS THAT KELLY PICKLER IS BETTER THAN CARRIE UNDERWOOD!!! ARE YOU DEAF OR JUST TONE DEAF? KELLY HAS TURNED SO FAKE SINCE SHE LEFT AMERICAN IDOL AND CARRIE HAS STAYED REAL.

Why does all of America have to know what's going on with Pickler's dad?? I mean, she's very talented and if she's been able to rise above having an idiot for a dad, why does it need to be advertised?? Can't people just get a life and let people live their life?!

The father is white-trash and TMZ is trash for putting this on the internet. Let the girl deal with it on her own.
