It's all up to a doctor's availability as to when a troubled country singer might be back in court.

A psychological evaluation has been ordered for Doug Supernaw. The singer is best known for his 1993 hits "Reno" and "I Don't Call Him Daddy," but he's been plagued by legal problems in recent years, mostly related to drug and alcohol offenses.

Brazos County Court-at-Law Judge Jim Locke ordered the psychological exam Tuesday after the country crooner said he was the subject of a police conspiracy. He also said he had been "held hostage in Paris" in a "mentally retarded home for terrorists" for two weeks in 2002.

Supernaw went on to say police had beaten him to ruin his recording career and his chances at a baseball career.

The singer was in court Tuesday for a misdemeanor charge of evading arrest stemming from a 2004 confrontation with a police officer in Bryan.

Supernaw could face up to six months in jail if convicted.
