Randy Travis Arrested In The Buff

Submitted by on August 8, 2012 – 9:24 am Comments

Randy Travis with guitarRandy Travis was arrested near Tioga, Texas late last night around 11:59 pm on suspicion of DWI. Travis had many minor cuts, bruises and a black eye that he received from crashing his car. Travis was completely nude when the police arrived on the scene. He refused to take a breathalyzer test, and therefore had to have his blood alcohol level tested by having his blood drawn. 

Police received a phone call at 11:18 pm about a man who was lying in the street. When they arrived, they saw a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am that had smashed through several barricades in a construction zone. The car belonged to 53 year old Randy Travis.

Travis was also charged with “retaliation” for verbally threatening a police officer during the arrest. According to the Grayson County Sheriff’s office, once Travis was inside the officer’s car, the country music singer said he was going to shoot and kill the state troopers who were arresting him.

Travis remained in the buff the entire way to the police station. When he arrived, the police gave him a black t-shirt to wear for his mug shot, and a paper suit to cover his lower half. Apparently Travis and his girlfriend just had a major fight. This is Travis’ 2nd arrest this year as he was arrested back in February for public intoxication for drinking while parked in his car in front of a Baptist Church.

Travis has now been released from police custody after posting bail, a grand total of $21,500. He is scheduled to appear before a judge in Randy Travis Mug ShotSherman, Texas, around 60 miles north of Dallas. The blood test results are still currently pending. According to police officers, Travis smelled very strongly of alcohol and showed many signs of intoxication. Travis’s spokes rep has made no comments regarding the arrest. Travis’ February arrest also occurred near Tioga, where the singer lives.

He has also recently been involved in some court proceedings with his ex-wife, Elizabeth. The couple divorced in 2010 after 19 years of marriage. Elizabeth was also Travis’ manager for over three decades and recently filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming he terminated her management contract without the proper notice after making it nearly impossible for her to do her job. She has also accused Travis of sending an armed guard to help her clean out her offices. Travis has counter-sued stating that his ex-wife has leaked confidential information in an attempt to damage his career.

Hopefully the country music star can pull himself back together before his behavior gets even more out of hand. If being arrested while butt naked isn’t rock bottom, I don’t know what is!
