With the FBI accusing her of “parental abduction,” troubled singer Mindy McCready tells ABC that she believed she did nothing wrong in violating a court order.
After fleeing with her five-year-old son to Arkansas, U.S. Marshals said they later found the country singer and the boy hiding in a closet, which she denies.
“What I did was to protect my child, there’s not a person in the world that’s going to tell me that that is wrong,” said McCready, who was found in Arkansas.
"I would not ever think that me taking my own child, that I carried for nine months, that I gave birth to in the hospital by myself would ever be breaking the law.”
That's not necessarily how it works, but oh well.
McCready, who is pregnant with twins, said her son was anguished when, she said, U.S. Marshals came to get the boy with a SWAT team-like force last Friday.
“He was screaming, ‘Please don’t touch me, don’t touch me, please don’t touch my mommy. Please, leave me alone, I want to be with my mommy,’” she said.
An official with the U.S. Marshalls said that authorities used standard operating procedure when taking Zander into custody and had a social worker with them.
