Mindy McCready Headed Back to Jail

Country singer Mindy McCready is about to have some extra time for song writing.

Mindy is prepping to turn herself in to police tomorrow for violating her probation for prescription drug fraud in June. Her attorney, Lee Ofman, issued this statement:

"In accordance with an agreement we have reached with the district attorney of Williamson County, Tennessee, Ms. McCready will voluntarily surrender to authorities on September 30th to serve a sentence of 60 days. The successful completion of this sentence will satisfy her obligation to the State of Tennessee resulting from her probation violation."

The troubled crooner did a stint in rehab this past July, and was jailed in 2007 for, yep, violating probation on a drug arrest from 2004.

Mindy sent this message out to her fans:

"I am working very hard to put all of this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to what I like to do most: sing, write songs, and entertain. I would like to thank my fans for their unwavering support as I continue to work on my recovery and to regain custody of my precious son, Zander."
