Mindy McCready says she violated a court order, but so what? She's a mother protecting her child.
She took her 5-year-old son, Zander, from the Cape Coral, Fla., home of the country singer's maternal grandmother so a judge ordered them to return.
McCready claims U.S. Marshals showed up with guns drawn and stormed the Arkansas lakehouse where they were holed up, which horrified her son.
The U.S. Marshals have a different story about what happened.
The boy has since been placed in foster care until the courts can settle on who gets custody. McCready lost custody after she broke her probation rules from a drug charge.
A full interview with the country star airs tonight on ABC's "20/20".
