Posted: Updated:

TIOGA, TX -- Last night around 11-thirty, the Grayson County Sheriffs Office got a 9-1-1 call for a man lying in the roadway on F.M 922 at Clover Road west of Tioga, Texas.

When the Texas State Troopers arrived at the scene, they found a man lying naked and unresponsive in the roadway.
The man in the roadway turned out to be country singer randy Travis.  According to the police report Travis had been involved in a one-car accident and displayed several signs of intoxication. DPS officials say Travis was arrested for DWI.
We've learned that it was earlier in the evening, around 9:30, when Travis stopped at the Tiger Mart Store in Pilot Point.  The store clerks say he entered the store completely naked.
"A customer walked in, he was butt naked.  And demanded cigarettes, he was asking for Marlboro Lights and some other kind of cigarettes.  And he told the man, what are you doing over here?  With nothing on??" says store owner Mike Ziyadeah
The store clerk says Travis demanded cigarettes and didn't have money.
"He said just go ahead and give me the cigarettes he's looking at his hands.  He didn't have any money on him."
The clerk also said once they denied Travis the merchandise he  sped away in a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am
"He was driving a race car.  It was a camaro kind of.  It's black and souped up with wheels and everything."
It was later when, according to the police report, when Travis drove off the north side of F.M. 922 at Clover Road striking several barricades in a construction zone.
Police also says he made threats against Troopers resulting in an additional charge of retaliation.  Travis was released from the Grayson County Jail this morning barefooted, and wearing only a county issued jumpsuit, after posting a $1500 bond for driving while intoxicated and a $20,000 bond for retaliation.
 It's the second time this year Travis has been arrested.  In February he was arrested for public intoxication in Cooke County.
"He has been arrested on alcohol offense before, but it was not a DWI case so this will be a first time DWI, which is a class B misdemeanor.  Punishable by up to 6 months in jail.  And then there's a retaliation charge, I don't know the details yet, but generally that's a third degree felony" says Grayson County District Attorney, Joe Brown.
D.P.S Officials say Travis refused all sobriety tests and a search warrant was obtained for a blood specimen.
