Country singer Randy Travis was charged with driving while intoxicated and threatening law officers after he crashed his car and was found naked and combative at the scene, Texas officials said.
Travis was arrested late last night near his Texas home after he crashed his car; he sustained minor cuts and bruises but is otherwise okay. However, he verbally abused the arresting officer and was subsequently charged with retaliation and obstruction, a felony, in addition to the DWI.
A Pontiac Trans Am registered to the 53-year-old singer had veered off a roadway near Tioga, a town about 60 miles north of Dallas where the entertainer lives, and struck several barricades in a construction zone, said Tom Vinger, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
TMZ says that witnesses have stated Travis was naked when he crashed, which raises a whole lot of questions that likely won’t be answered soon; he’s being held without bond until a meeting with the judge later today.
A Travis representative said there would be no immediate comment on the arrest.
Travis was busted for public intoxication earlier this year after he was found drinking in a church parking lot, drowning his sorrows after a fight with his lady.
