Country singer Mindy McCready attempts suicide

Country music singer Mindy McCready was taken to a Nashville-area hospital for treatment and a psychological evaluation following a suicide attempt Wednesday.

According to reports, McCready severed a tendon in her left arm, that required immediate surgery.

McCready’s brother Timothy said the country star returned home at about 3:30 a.m. “very intoxicated” and immediately went to bed reports the NY Daily News. Three hours later, their mother Gayle Inge told the brother that she had received a disturbing call from McCready and asked him to check on her.

Timothy McCready found the singer stumbling in the kitchen. She went back to her bedroom and later called her assistant and told him to come over because “she had done something bad.”

McCready was the center of reports in April that she had previously had an affair with Roger Clemens in 1991, when she was only 15. McCready was arrested and charged with battery and resisting arrest in 2007 after a mental breakdown.
