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.
It wasn’t the smashup itself that landed the Latin sensation in handcuffs, however, but a clash with cops after the accident. She was charged, but wasn’t taken to jail due to “extenuating circumstances”: She had to breastfeed her baby.
“All of you Miami cops are abusive,” Rubio reportedly screamed when asked to get out of her car. She then made multiple phone calls and ignored police requests to comply.
“I’m not getting out of the car!” she screamed. “What the [expletive] do you want me to do? I just had an accident and I’m very nervous. That’s why people don’t like you because all you Miami cops are abusive.”
Rubio continued to yell at the officers after they placed her, handcuffed, in the back seat of a patrol car, according to police reports. She calmed down about an hour later and apologized, TMZ reports.
She is charged with refusing to obey a lawful command, obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct.
