Stories like this make country music so much more appealing. Mindy McCready was busted (and Maced for acting the fool) after a drunken brawl at her Mom’s house this past weekend. McCready, if you’ll recall, has spent the last several years in repeated legal trouble involving pills and booze. This bust violated the probation that this chick was already on, so they had to arrest her. At an airport! Coming off a plane!
McCready had just flown into Nashville International Airport via Southwest Airlines Wednesday when sheriff’s deputies took her into custody. She was booked at Williamson County Jail at about 5:10 p.m. ET and is being held without bail, according to the Tennessean newspaper.
Deputy District Attorney Derek Smith told the Tennessean that the “Guys Do It All the Time” singer violated her probation on a 2004 drug charge by getting arrested in Florida, as well as by failing to report her latest arrest to her probation officer and by engaging in “assaultive behavior.”
Mindy was a pain in the ass, and ended up with a broken nose and various bruises during the previous arrest last weekend. She could face up to three years in jail if convicted. This would be such a hot concept album when she gets through the pain. If she sobers up and turns it into shitkicker art, it could make millions.
