NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nashville police say country singer Mindy McCready, who is from North Fort Myers, has been hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt.

A police report says McCready's brother discovered she had cut her wrists and taken several pills at her home Wednesday. Timothy McCready told police his sister had been "very intoxicated" after a night out.

A hospital spokeswoman says the singer is in stable condition. McCready attorney Lee Ofman said he did not have details about the situation.

In October, McCready was released after about 30 days in jail for violating probation on a 2004 drug charge.

She has struggled with legal and personal problems that included previous suicide attempts.
