Mexican singer Paulina Rubio arrested for disorderly conduct. She was arrested last weekend after arguing with police about a minor traffic incident. Police said the accident was not Rubio’s fault and there where no injuries, however she became argumentative with police.
Though she was not thrown in jail she was given a citation for a court appearance. Law enforcement sources said the Mexican singer was involved in an accident just blocks away from the ocean in Miami. Paulina Rubio arrested for disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice and refusal to obey a lawful command.
However, the charges were small enough that Rubio was not taken into custody. The first officer at the accident told her to get out of her car and wait on the sidewalk nearby. She allegedly refused to get out of the car and began cursing at the officer in Spanish.
The officer then told Rubio she was under arrest and pulled her out of the car and handcuffed her. The singer reportedly started screaming for help. She remained in a patrol car for about an hour before calming down and then apologizing.
Officers did not take Rubio to jail. They reportedly cited and released her because she claimed to have to rush home to breastfeed her 6-month-old child. She has one child named Andrea Nicolas, with husband Nicolas Vallejo-Najera .
Rubio’s greatest English-language success was her 2002 single “Don’t Say Goodbye (Si Tú Te Vas)” from her sixth album, Border Girl. Causa y Efecto, the first single from her most recent album Gran City Pop, reached #1 on radio in the U.S., Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Spain, as well as many Spanish speaking countries.
It reached #1 on U.S. Billboard’s “Hot Latin Tracks”. “Causa y Efecto” is Rubio’s first number one single in the Billboard Hot Latin Songs since Ni Una Sola Palabra in 2006 and fourth #1 single over all. Gran City Pop received a Grammy nomination at the 52nd Grammy Awards for “Best Latin Pop Album.”
