The “Everywhere” singer was taken into custody after Nashville police were called to the couple’s home on Thursday for a possible domestic disturbance, according to an affidavit in the case obtained Friday by The Times.

Branch, 39, was booked and charged with domestic assault hours later and released after making a $1,000 bond, said John Adams, deputy chief of staff for the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office. She is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 11.

When police officers were called to the couple’s home, Branch told them that she and Carney “are having marital issues and had been arguing,” the criminal court affidavit said. Their argument escalated and Branch admitted to slapping Carney in the face “one to two times.”

Carney, 42, was also interviewed by law enforcement officials and said that Branch had slapped him, but he did not have any visible injuries, the affidavit said. Meanwhile, Branch’s mug shot, released Friday by the Metropolitan National Police Dept., showed redness under her right eye.
