FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- Mindy McCready’s legal troubles continue to persist. The country singer was arrested in Tennessee and charged with violating her probation, Access Hollywood has learned.
She has allegedly been lying about the number of community service hours she has completed.
In September 2007, McCready was ordered by a judge to complete 200 hours of community service for a probation violation for falsifying a prescription for the painkiller OxyContin.
She was held briefly in a jail in Franklin, Tennessee, on Monday, and then released a few hours later after posting bail, a rep for the Williamson County Circuit Court confirmed to Access.
Contrary to reports, McCready did not appear in court Tuesday morning, according to the rep.
A hearing is set for July 8, where McCready is required to appear before a judge.
The country singer originally filed a motion in May to reduce the number of her public service hours, which would “allow her to remain gainfully employed.”
Additionally, Williamson County Sheriff’s Dept told Access that when an individual violates their community service, they have to start over in regards to the number of hours completed.
