Country singer Scotty Mccreery has broken his silence after he and a friend were robbed at gunpoint in an early morning raid at the beginning of the month.
The former American Idol star was visiting a student pal in North Carolina when four men burst in on them and demanded cash.
Recalling the “scary” incident during a Friday morning interview with Los Angeles-based DJ Ryan Seacrest, McCreery said, “We had gone out… it was, like, 1.30 in the morning… We were watching Gladiator on TV and all of a sudden we heard a knock (at the door).
“We didn’t recognize them (men) so we didn’t open it. And the second guy, (my friend) thought it was a neighbor. And it was only one person… no mask, no gun, no glove, didn’t look suspicious. As soon as they opened the door, then four people barged in guns a-blazing.
“I thought, ‘Whatever you want you take it’. I was on the ground, and he was holding the gun to our heads. I was staring down the barrel of a pistol.”
No one was hurt in the raid but the robbers made off with a wallet, the singer’s phone, and a laptop.
Police have charged teenager Mikkail Jammal Shaw with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
