Randy Travis Arrested For DWI In Texas
Country music star Randy Travis, 53, is at it again. "Forever and Ever, Amen" singer Travis was arrested in Grayson County, Texas, on Tuesday night when a passer-by found him lying on the side of the road and called 911.
The caller who came across Travis didn't get out of the automobile. "I'm spooked out," the caller said to the 911 dispatcher, not appraching Travis. When authorities arrived on the scene, they found Travis lying on the side of the road without his shirt on. He had allegedly been in a single-car collision and then passed out on the side of the road, reports ABC News. Travis reportedly had a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication."
Travis also reportedly threatened to shoot the arresting troopers, which caused him to be charged with retaliation and obstruction, as well as driving while intoxicated. By the time Travis arrived at the police station, he was naked, though it is unclear if he was naked when troopers found him or if he removed his clothes at some point afterward. "That's just the way he was brought into our jail," said Sgt. Ricky Wheeler of the Grayson County Sherriff's Department.
In February, the night of the Super Bowl, Travis was also arrested for public intoxication when he was found sitting in his parked car outside a church in Sanger, Texas, drinking wine. He pleaded no contest to those charges and later released a statement saying, "I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl. I'm committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions."
Travis divorced from his wife and former manager of of 19 years, Lib Hatcher, in 2010.
