Country singer Mindy McCready gets out of jail

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Mindy McCready, who was sentenced in September for violating probation from a 2004 drug arrest, has been released from jail.

The 32-year-old country singer was released Sunday morning, said a clerk at the Williamson County jail.

The violation occurred in July when McCready was accused of scuffling with her mother and resisting arrest at her mother's home in Fort Myers, Fla.

She still must serve two years' probation.

Her attorney, Lee Ofman, said McCready has learned her lesson and will stay out of trouble.

She had a No. 1 single in 1996 with 'Guys Do It All the Time.'

Federline attorney says Spears will be deposed soon

NEW YORK - The attorney for Kevin Federline says he wants to depose Britney Spears soon, the latest step in the former couple's ongoing child-custody battle.

'Britney Spears will have her deposition early (next) year,' Mark Vincent Kaplan told late Saturday outside a Beverly Hills restaurant. 'We've got a lot to talk about.'

Spears, 26, called in sick to a court-ordered deposition Dec. 12, although she was photographed that day driving with a friend.

'She was, in fact, out later that day and night,' Kaplan said. 'It's not fourth grade where you get a doctor's note and it's all OK.'

First guest for David Letterman upon return is Robin Williams

NEW YORK - Robin Williams will be David Letterman's first guest upon the return of his 'Late Show' on CBS Wednesday.

The appearance of a Hollywood A-lister who can talk a mile a minute may be Letterman's way of quickly trying to draw a distinction between his show and his late-night rivals, who are without writers and may also have trouble booking major entertainers as guests.

NBC's 'Tonight' show said Monday that Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee will appear on Jay Leno's

first show back Wednesday.
