KINGMAN, Ariz., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Kingman, Ariz., authorities Friday dropped criminal charges against country singer Mindy McCready in a case involving a stolen pickup truck.

Few details of the case have been made public, E! Online noted. McCready has from the start claimed she was the victim of a con man.

The singer still has a number of court dates coming up, however. Her next appearance is in Tennessee Nov. 14 for a probation violation hearing.

McCready was tossed in a Florida jail in August on a warrant issued for her arrest following her second violation.

The pregnant singer was previously busted on a DUI charge in May and was convicted of fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers in November 2004.

McCready had a No. 1 hit with "Guys Do It All the Time" in 1996.
