Randy Travis Arrested for DWI (in the nude) in Texas: Report
By Alison Schwartz
Randy Travis has been arrested for an alcohol-related offense – once again. This time, reportedly in the nude.
The country singer suffered cuts and bruises when he crashed his car Tuesday night, and was arrested shortly before midnight on suspicion of driving while intoxicated near Tioga, Texas, 60 miles north of Dallas.
Sheriff's troopers responding to a 911 call reporting a man was lying in the roadway smelled a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" on Travis's breath, according to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
"While Travis was being transported, [he] made threats to shoot and kill the troopers working the case," says the sheriff's office in a statement.
The singer refused to give a blood or breath test for alcohol, so blood was drawn under a search warrant.
TMZ reports Travis was completely naked when the cops arrested him, but there is no mention of that in the sheriff's statement.
Travis, 53, was being held on a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and a felony of retaliation.
A rep for the singer did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
This marks another run-in with the law for Travis, who was arrested in February on a charge of public intoxication after police found him smelling of alcohol and carrying an open bottle of wine in front of a church.
The Dallas/Fort Worth-area resident told police at the time he'd just gotten in a fight with his girlfriend – he split from his wife of 19 years in 2010 – and he later apologized for his drunken behavior.
Its another run-in with the law for the country singer, who is currently in police custody
He also has a home in Santa Fe and often would sing at my old church and at the Easter Sunrise Service at the UNM football stadium. Very disappointing to see him fighting some demons so publicly. Hope he can get it together!!!
I'm sure UT is thrilled he's representing, lol!
Randy Travis left a Texas jail this morning in a brand new suit ... a paper suit ... after cops found the country singer NAKED at the scene of a DWI car
The man needs two things... Serious help and his license taken away for a decade or two...
He was just cited again, fighting in a church parking lot (drunk according to some,) how sad.
11:38 AM PT -- A source close to Randy tells TMZ, the singer was NOT drunk, nor had he been drinking. The source says Randy
