Singer Paulina Rubio arrested in Miami after crash

- Associated Press - Monday, June 27, 2011

MIAMI (AP) - Mexican pop singer Paulina Rubio is charged in Miami with refusing to comply with police officers after a traffic accident.

According to an arrest report, Rubio's BMW collided with another car Saturday near Miami's Little Havana.

When asked to get out of her car, Rubio allegedly refused, cursed at an officer and said she was nervous and that "all of you Miami cops are abusive."

The officer placed Rubio in handcuffs. The report states that Rubio screamed for help and threatened to call her attorney.

Police say Rubio eventually calmed down and apologized. She is charged with refusing to obey a lawful command, obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct.

The report says Rubio wasn't taken into custody because she needed to breastfeed her baby. She'll have to appear in court.
