Dierks Bentley Ticketed In Colorado For Fishing Without A License

(CBS4) -- Country music star Dierks Bentley got himself into a little trouble in Colorado. Bentley tweeted a video of himself sitting in a patrol car, getting a ticket -- for fishing without a license.

"Hey Luke, those fish we caught in the Cottonwood Creek this week here in Buena Vista, we should probably getting a fishing license next time because I just got pulled over," Bentley said. He tagged fellow singers Luke Bryan and Hardy.

"You're next," he warns.

Bentley posted a selfie with a fish on Instagram on Sunday -- and joke that he was having much better results than Bryan.

Bryan was in Colorado for the Seven Peaks Music Festival in Buena Vista.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife responded to Bentley's video saying: "We tip our caps to @DierksBentley for being a gentleman when our @COParksWildlife officer cited him for fishing without a license this weekend at the @SevenPeaksFest in Buena Vista. We appreciate his kind words about CPW and we welcome him back anytime. With a license of course."
