"No jury in America would convict me!"As we mentioned yesterday, Mindy McCready was in hot water in Florida for failing to return her son to her dad's house. (McCready's mom has legal custody, her parents are divorced, and I'm already confused. Country singer, drugs, et cetera.) A missing person report was filed, but Mindy replied by saying something to the effect of "All is well!" in the way Kevin Bacon did right before getting comically flattened by a rampaging mob toward the end of Animal House.
That was yesterday. Today it's been reported that Mindy, who's somewhere in Nashville, says she can't return to Florida because, well, she's seven months pregnant with twins. Even though she was probably six-and-a-half months pregnant when she took her son from Florida to Tennessee.
She risks arrest. And she's ready for it:
"I'm a mom first," said McCready from Nashville, Tenn. "No matter what happens, I'm going to protect my kid. If I have to go to jail, so be it."I think everyone should use the "I'm carrying twins" excuse. "Take out the garbage? Sorry, I'm carrying twins!" "I can't deliver that presentation today, Ted. I'm carrying twins!" "I'd give that stripper a bigger tip, but I'm carrying twins!"
