America’s Got Talent finalist Glennis Grace revealed via Instagram on Tuesday (Feb. 15) that she was arrested in her home country of The Netherlands.
The post, translated to English, reads: “Last Saturday I was arrested after an incident in a supermarket in Amsterdam. I look forward to the investigation, which is still ongoing, with confidence because I know that I have not committed any criminal offenses. Although I’d like to say more about this, in the interest of the investigation, I’m keeping my mouth shut for now. I will respond as soon as I can. Love, Glennis.”
While Glennis didn’t reveal the details of the arrest, TMZ reports that her 15-year-old song had “some sort of interaction” with the staff at a supermarket in The Netherlands.

We are now waiting for the investigation to be finished before making further announcements,” Grace’s attorney said in a statement to the publication.
