MINDY: VIDEO HELPED HER CASE
Mindy McCready believes that the video of a field sobriety test she took while stopped on a speeding charge helped acquit her of a DUI.
Mindy was found not guilty of DUI in a Nashville court, Wed., July 19. The troubled singer had been pulled over for speeding in Nashville on May 6, 2005, and refused to take a breath test. Mindy found it hard to complete the sobriety test as her pant legs were too long, which jurors were able to see in the video. “They could see that I’m standing there on the side of the road with pebbles and my feet hurting and I was still able to stand,” she said. Mindy also referred to the jury as “angels” for their acquittal verdict. The trial judge also dropped a contempt of court charge against Mindy for arriving ten minutes late for her first day in court.
