Right Now In Nashville: Mindy McCready Attempts Suicide

Troubled country singer Mindy McCready has had a bad couple of years. She continued her downward spiral Wednesday as she for an apparent attempted suicide. Mindy, whose youthful affair with pitcher Roger Clemens came to light in April, was taken to a Nashville-area hospital to be treated for wounds on her wrists. “We responded to a ’10-63,’ that’s a suicidal person call,” Nashville Police Department spokeswoman Kris Mumford said. “Mindy McCready was at the house.”

McCready was hospitalized in 2005 after swallowing a near-fatal dose of pills, chased with wine. In July she overdosed on drugs and alcohol, which sent her to the emergency room at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She later checked into rehab. In October, McCready spent 31 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation from a 2004 guilty plea for fraudulently obtaining painkillers.

Somebody please commit Mindy and get her the help she needs. Her public troubles with the law, drugs and alcohol are huge cries for assistance. Albeit of her own doing, her life truly mirrors a country song. It’s one of the saddest ever.

Mindy McCready’s Gettin Out, Wants A Drink

Oh, Mindy, Mindy, Mindy. Country music’s #1 trainwreck Mindy McCready is getting out of jail early… tomorrow in fact! Just in time for Halloween! Mindy’s been in the pokey because she violated her probation. She falsified her community service records. Snarkista doesn’t have time right now to explain ALL of Mindy’s troubles with the law. You truly need a map and some serious free time.

Mindy puts the dumb in blonde, ‘cuz she’s let everyone know what she’s gonna do as soon as she gets out tomorrow. She wants a Bloody Mary! Now, Mindy’s gotten in trouble with the spirits before, and not the kind that come out on Halloween. She’s been locked up in Williamson County, Tennessee…where the law is KNOWN for busting you first and asking questions later. They particularly like popping people for DUI’s. Smart, Mindy!

Mindy also wants to go costume shopping, ‘cuz she is gonna PAR-TAY tomorrow night. She better get herself a cab or a designated driver, as the Williamson County police are quite familiar with Miss McCready! They have her picture with a superimposed target on it in every squad car. So congrats on getting sprung early, Mindy. Lets see if you can stay out of trouble for a few weeks this time.
