Country “Star” Randy Travis arrested for DUI….naked!

Posted by Nathan Webb | Dec 19, 2012 | 0 Comments

Randy Travis has had a tough year, first he was arrested for Public Intoxication (there is no such charge in Washington State so feel free to get drunk in public, lol, just kidding) in February and now he has apparently been arrested for DWI (DUI is what it is deemed here), both in my home state of Texas.

Travis was driving his black 1998 Pontiac Trans Am, which went off the north side of a highway just west of Tioga, Texas, where he resides, and struck several barricades in a construction zone, said Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Tackett.

Travis was found naked, Tackett said. When the singer was brought to Grayson County jail at 3 a.m., after a hospital visit, he still didn't have clothes, Sgt. Rickey Wheeler said.

“He was given a paper suit, which is a jail uniform made out of paper,” Wheeler told CNN.

Travis was charged with driving while intoxicated and felony retaliation, after allegedly threatening to fatally shoot highway patrol troopers who responded to a concerned caller who notified authorities of “a man lying in the roadway” Tuesday. The incident happened just six months after he pleaded no contest to public intoxication in another case.
