McCready 911 Tape -- "My Mom Is Attacking Me"

7/23/2007 8:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Moments before she was arrested in Florida Saturday night, country singer Mindy McCready told a 911 dispatcher that her mother had "attacked" her, and "made marks on herself to make it look like [Mindy] hurt her." A baby can be heard screaming in the background during the entire conversation.

A short time after Mindy made the call, Lee County Sheriffs arrested the singer after they saw scratches on her mother's face and said that McCready's breath reeked of alcohol -- despite Mindy's recorded claim that neither she nor her mother had been drinking or doing any drugs that night.

According to the arrest report, McCready "struggled" when sheriffs arrived, and had to be restrained. During the confrontation, she hit her head on the ground, which caused the gash on her face in the mugshot.

McCready was then taken to jail, where deputies say she was so disruptive, they were forced to use pepper spray to control her. McCready claims the cops abused her, and told a news station that she plans to take legal action.

Craziness! She is going down a bad road. I hope she can get help, before she kills someone with her drinking and drugging. Her carreer is over, too bad, she could have been somebody.

Its not over, fight back.

Learn to love yourself again. It only takes a moment to change your thoughts. Talk to your son and talk to yourself so you can focus on what really matters. You can only be who you are. You are still beautiful so act like it. It starts on the inside, find her. Theres an answer in a song. I love you for not giving up. Now pick youself up and no matter what happens you dont have to tell yourself bad things. You are not out of your mind, just out of character, because you are human. I know you are embarassed and feel humiliated, but trust me, it's nothin'.

This one is so pathetic - and so over - that folks don't get much delight in taking digs and just jump on over to the other trainwrecks. "Sad" is a word that's gonna pop up a lot with Mindy. But nothing's better than a life turned around for the good. Hope it happens with her.

I love this broad. She should be the opening act for Keith Richards. Did you know she is the bastard daughter of Nick Nolte and Paula Abdul?

How about some concern for the people she has hurt. How about the people she owes money to? How about the people who recieved one of her bad checks? How about the people she hurt by telling lies? How about the time before thiswhen the police were called because she attacked her Mom? She should have been a actress not a singer. Soon, people will know more of the real story about Mindy McCready. Maybe then people will know this story is not just about Mindy. Its about the people who have been taken advantage of by Mindy. She is not a kind or nice person. She is self-serving and does not think twice about hurting anyone. I feel extremely sorry for her child. I am actually scared for her child.
