Mindy McCready Released From Jail
Fallen country star Mindy McCready has been released from jail. The 32-year-old singer was behind bars for violating her probation from a 2004 drug arrest. A subsequent arrest came last July, when McCready allegedly assaulted her mother and then resisted arrest. That incident resulted in her spending the last four months in a Tennessee jail.
McCready, known for the hits 'Ten Thousand Angels' and 'Guys Do It All the Time,' has a long history of troubles. In 2004, she pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining prescription drugs. In May 2005, she was arrested for DUI. Two days later, her baby's father was arrested for allegedly trying to kill her. In July 2005, McCready was hit with a long list of charges including identity theft and unlawful imprisonment, when police say she and another man stole a truck and forced another woman to accompany them on a mission to steal two luxury boats. Later that year, McCready attempted suicide twice.
Even though she's now a free woman, McCready will be on probation for another two years.
