LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Country singer Mindy McCready was arrested early Saturday morning in Florida and charged with battery and resisting arrest.
McCready, 31, was charged with the two misdemeanors, according to booking information, TMZ.com reports. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office would not discuss what happened nor what led to her arrest.
McCready, who had a No. 1 hit in 1996 with “Guys Do It All the Time,” has struggled in recent years, beginning with a 2004 conviction for fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers. She was on probation for that offense when she was charged with driving under the influence in 2005.
She was found not guilty of the DUI charge, but guilty of driving on a suspended license.
McCready was released on $1,000 bail Saturday and is scheduled to appear in court August 14.
