Randy Travis Arrested In Grayson County While Naked


GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Grayson County early Wednesday morning after deputies say he was found lying naked in the road.

Deputies say Travis was naked when he was brought in to the Grayson County Jail in Sherman, where records show he was booked in just before 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday on charges of DWI as well as Retaliation.

According to Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown, Travis's bond will be set by a judge at the jail so there will not be an initial hearing yet.

Brown says the case will probably end up in front of a grand jury and a hearing could be set in a couple of weeks.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office released the following information:

"On August 7, 2012 the Grayson County Sheriff's Office (Sherman, TX) received a 911 at call 11:18 p.m. The caller stated there was a man lying in the roadway on F.M. 922 at Clover Road just outside of Tioga, Texas.

Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers responded to the scene. Randy Bruce Travis was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (misdemeanor) and Retaliation (felony).

According to the book-in sheet, Randy Travis was involved in a one vehicle accident. Travis had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication. Travis refused a blood and breath test; a search warrant was granted by a judge for a blood specimen, which was taken at a local hospital.

While Travis was being transported Travis made threats to shoot and kill the Troopers working the case. (Thus the Retaliation charge)

Randy Bruce Travis' was arrested for: Driving While Intoxicated – Bond set at $1,500.00

Retaliation – Bond set at $20,000.00"

Texas DPS added that a black 1998 Pontiac Trans Am, registered to Randy Travis, had driven off of the north side of the road, striking several barricades in a construction zone.
