Mccready Thought Police Were Targetting Her

LATEST: Troubled country singer MINDY MCCREADY thought Tennessee police were giving her "a hard time" when they pulled her over ahead of her drink driving arrest last year (05). The GUYS DO IT ALL THE TIME hitmaker, 30, testified in a Nashville court on Tuesday (18JUL06) as she fights charges of driving under the influence stemming from her May 2005 arrest. At the time, MCCready refused to take a breath test, but the police claimed she smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet. MCCready said yesterday, "Way back when - when I used to have hit records 10 years ago - I would get pulled over a lot and had officers ask me to do the strangest things. Once an officer asked me to dance for his camera." The singer claimed that while she knew she had a suspended license at the time of the arrest, she decided to drive home to stop her drunk friend from taking the wheel. She explained, "I was trying to do the right thing to help somebody else, and I got myself into trouble." MCCready also faces another court appointment over charges she violated her probation on a 2004 drug charge by failing to meet her probation officer and leaving Tennessee for Florida without permission. The case continues.
