Mindy McCready's mug shot comes from her 2007 arrest on a charge of battery. According to a news report written shortly after the arrest, the singer and her mother had an argument that turned physical, with both accusing the other of assault. Eventually, police decided to arrest McCready, but she resisted, forcing the officer to take her to the ground to restrain her. That's how she got the cut on her nose.

Furthermore, McCready is said to have been acting belligerent at the police station during booking. Her mother said she'd been drinking, and the officer said he smelled alcohol on her breath. She was eventually pepper sprayed in an effort to get her to cooperate.
