The singer's history includes a DUI, theft, driving with a suspended license and marijuana possession. Hayes is currently on probation and she would need permission to leave the state.
Hayes told Seattle's Q13 FOX, "I got arrested for a DUI... I made a poor choice." She continued, "I decided to drive drunk. It's not the fact that I have a DUI on my record, it's the fact that I did what's called a deferred prosecution so in seven years if I'm good, it's then erased from my record. But I then have to be on probation for those seven years where they're watching me and making sure I don't screw up again and get any infractions."
Hayes says producers encouraged her to audition again next year.
