Naked Randy Travis Threatened to Shoot and Kill State Troopers Who Arrested Him for DWI
Police say country music singer Randy Travis was naked and very combative when he was busted for DWI Tuesday night in Texas … and he even threatened to shoot and kill the state troopers who arrested him.
According to TMZ, prior to his arrest, Travis was involved in a single car crash, an when troopers arrived at the scene, after responding to a 911 call about a man lying in the roadway, they noticed Travis’ 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had driven off the road and crashed into a construction zone.
Police also noticed something else about Randy Travis — he was BUCK NAKED! And Before the DWI arrest, someone called the cops to complain that a naked Travis had walked into a convenience store, and tried to buy some cigarettes.
On the way to jail, Travis — still buck naked — “made threats to shoot and kill the troopers working the case,” according to a statement by the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office.
Once he arrived, he was given a scrub suit (so that he could take his mugshot), and was booked on a misdemeanor DWI charge and a felony retaliation charge (for threatening the officers). He was released early Wednesday morning, still wearing the scrubs, on $21,500 bond.
Believe it or not … Tuesday’s incident marks the singer’s second arrest this year alone.
Back in February, Randy was arrested for public intoxication after police found him sitting in his car in front of a church with an open bottle of wine, and reeking of alcohol. Randy told police that he had just gotten into a fight with his girlfriend.
