Cops: Kracker Threatened to Bolt

8/17/2007 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

KrackerAfter he was arrested on a forcible sex offense in N.C. this morning, cops say Uncle Kracker actually threatened to hightail it back to his home state to avoid charges.

According to the arrest documents obtained by TMZ, "arresting officers informed this court that [Kracker] made statements that he would immediately fly back to Michigan to avoid charges." Kracker, who was determined to be "a nationally known singer with major assets at his disposal," was then branded an "exceptionally high flight risk." His bond was then set at a cool $5 mil.

Raleigh Police tell TMZ that Kracker was busted early Friday morning after a 26-year-old female approached an off-duty cop in a nightclub and reported that "he had committed a sexual act against her while she was inside the establishment."

Kracker was later arrested at a nearby Embassy Suites Hotel.

Damn Kracker! I wouldn't think with your status that you'd need to force yourself on someone. That's pretty pityful.

Question: How dumb does one have to be to tell someone in authority that they want to make a run for it?

Answer: Pretty dumb.

Absolutely not true. Some broad is involved in a get rich quick scheme. I have been around Matt in social settings and other friends have traveled and toured with him. He is not like that. He just likes a cool brew and his cigarettes, plays cards and very rarely even interacts with women. And a $5M bond...if Matt doesn't have the cash, Chesney or Kid Rock will post it because they'll know he's being set up.
