RubioBreastfeedsJail230.jpgWell this is a new one! Usually women just turn on the tears to get the cops on their side!

Singer Paulina Rubio got in a car accident in Miami on Saturday, but got out of jail.

Apparently Rubio got in a minor accident, then for some reason responded to police help by cursing and yelling at officers, which got her arrested.

But after Rubio took an hour to calm down in the back of a police cruiser, the cops didn't take her to jail -- both because the charges were minor ... and she said she had to go home and breastfeed her baby.

We'll remember that next time we get pulled over for speeding!
