Mindy McCready has been arrested in Tennessee and charged with violating her probation.

Authorities accuse the 32-year-old country singer of falsifying her community service records.

Williamson County Sheriff's Department officer Charlotte Spencer says McCready turned herself in Monday, posted the $5,000 bond and was released two hours later.

She is on probation for a 2004 drug charge.

Her attorney, Lee Ofman, declined Thursday to comment on the new charge.

A corrections official says McCready will go before the judge who sentenced her, and he will decide what, if any, action to take.

McCready's court date wasn't immediately available.

She had a number one single in 1996 with "Guys Do It All the Time."
