Randy Travis’s Arrest

Randy Travis' Mugshot. Grayson County Sheriff's Office

The year of RANDY TRAVIS’ demise has taken another dark turn.  The New York Post reported that he was arrested late Tuesday night on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and for “retaliation and obstruction.” 

It happened in Randy’s hometown of Tioga, Texas, about an hour north of Dallas.

Someone called the police at 11:18 P.M. about a man lying in the street.  When the cops got there, they found Randy’s Trans Am had been driven off the road, through several barricades, and into a construction zone.

And they also found Randy . . . NAKED . . . with a black eye . . . and covered in cuts and bruises.  All of that was most likely from the crash, but we’re not sure.

Police said Randy, quote, “had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication.”

He was arrested and put in the squad car . . . and THAT’S when he made threats to KILL the troopers.  Huge mistake, because that’s a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, and a possible fine of $10,000.

At that point the cops hauled him off to jail, quote, “still naked.”  Although they were kind enough to give him one of their shirts and a paper suit for him to wear for the mug shot.

After spending the night locked up, he was arraigned and released on $21,500 bond yesterday morning.

Prosecutors are still deciding if they’re going to proceed on the misdemeanor DWI charge.  The felony “retaliation and obstruction” charge will go to a grand jury, and that could take up to six weeks.

Randy’s people have yet to comment.
