Randy Travis Cited For Assault

It seems that the legendary country singer can't stay out of trouble these days.. Randy Travis Cited For Assault

Randy Travis keeps making headlines but, unfortunately, it’s not for any good reasons.  Earlier this month he was arrested after crashing his car near Tioga, Texas which is just north of Dallas.  He suffered cuts and bruises in the accident but the most interesting part of this was that he was naked.

After someone called 911, the Sheriff’s troopers found Travis nude, lying in the road, with the “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” emanating from him.  Of course, cops suspected that he had been driving drunk but he refused to give a blood or breath test for alcohol.

During his transport, Travis made “threats to shoot and kill the troopers working the case” and, eventually, had to submit to a blood test that was drawn under a search warrant.

He was released after posting more than $20,000 in bail and was given some paper clothing so that he could get home.

This isn’t even the first time this year that he has been in a situation like this. Back in February, he was charged with public intoxication after he was found carrying an open bottle of wine in front of a church.

Now, just weeks after the most recent incident, the police were called over a domestic disturbance between an “estranged husband and wife.” Well, the wife in that situation was Travis’ girlfriend and the singer was actually fighting with her husband. 

Travis was cited for a Class C simple assault, "which is a minor misdemeanor offense similar to a traffic violation."

There were no reported injuries.
