Country Star Turns Himself in to Cops

5/28/2009 11:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John RichJohn Rich and Jared Ashley can't settle their differences -- so now the cops are involved.

Rich turned himself in to the Metro Davidson County Criminal Justice Center in Nashville, Tenn. this afternoon to face misdemeanor charges of assault and harassment stemming from an alleged altercation between the two. Rich and Ashley have both filed civil lawsuits against each other -- Ashley sued Rich for the alleged assault, and Rich sued back for defamation.

Rich, in a statement released by his lawyers, claims that since he can't reach a settlement with Ashley, he'd rather defend himself "through the legal process to the fullest extent of the law." He says, "I trust that the truth will come out through the process of our American justice system and that I will be completely exonerated at the end of the day."

Violence is never an answer, except in self defense. One can always go to the court and sue over defamation.I hope the truth comes out in court. Our judicial system isn't perfect, but it is better than violence.
