Police unable to contact waitress about accusations

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Memphis say they've been unable to contact a 19-year-old waitress who has accused country singer Hank Williams Junior of harassing her in a hotel bar.

Holly Hornbeak has filed a police report, but officers are seeking a more detailed statement.

Hornbeak alleges that around midnight Saturday, Williams swore at her, tried to kiss her and lifted her in a choke hold at the Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis.

Williams' daughters were hospitalized in Memphis because of injuries suffered in a car wreck, and Williams was staying at the hotel.

A spokesman for Williams said he's shocked by such allegations.
