Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct following a night out in Oregon.

The rocker was held by cops in the early hours of Saturday (16Mar13) after lashing out when she was reportedly denied drink service at Portland's Bungalo Bar over concerns she was too intoxicated.

A source tells local newspaper the Willamette Week that Ditto left the venue and began causing a disturbance on the street by kicking off her shoes and screaming "Obama, Obama!"

The singer was taken into custody and later released on her own recognisance.

Ditto's mugshot and booking information have been published on the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office website.
