Country star Mindy McCready has been arrested and charged with drunken driving in Nashville, Tennessee.

The TEN THOUSAND ANGELS singer was stopped yesterday (06MAY05) in the suburb of Belle Meade after police said she was driving at a speed of 58 miles per hour in a 40 miles-per-hour zone.

Police Corporal CANDACE MOWRY says the officer smelled alcohol in the vehicle and that McCready, 28, performed poorly on field sobriety tests. McCready refused to take a breath alcohol test.

McCready was charged with driving under the influence, driving on a suspended licence and failure to take the breath test, says Mowry.

The singer was booked into the Nashville jail and freed on$3,500 (GBP1,842) bond yesterday morning.

While McCready denies that she was intoxicated and that her driver's licence is suspended, she does acknowledge breaking the speed limit.

She says, "We all make mistakes. We're human. Hopefully, everyone - like I am - will have that attitude. I'm not upset."

McCready is on three years' supervised probation after pleading guilty last year (04) to purchasing painkillers with a false prescription.
