Country music star Hank Williams Jr. turned himself in to Memphis police Tuesday on a charge of assault to commit bodily harm stemming from an alleged altercation with a cocktail waitress in March.

Williams, whose full name is Randall Hank Williams, appeared "without incident" to the Shelby County Sheriff's Office after being notified of the charge Monday, according to Public Affairs Officer Steve Shular. He was released without bond.

On March 18, Holly Hornbeak told police that she was working the bar at the Peabody Hotel when the namesake of country legend Hank Williams asked to kiss her.

When she resisted, according to a police report, the 56-year-old Williams lifted her off the ground in a chokehold and struck her.

Williams, who has sang the theme for ABC's "Monday Night Football" since 1989, has maintained his innocence and cast himself as a "victim of greed" in a statement issued Tuesday.
