Randy Travis mugshot
Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Sanger, Texas this morning for public intoxication ... after cops say he was boozing in front of a Baptist church.

According to the Sanger Police Department, someone called the cops to report a suspicious vehicle near the church ... and when officers arrived to the scene, they discovered the 52-year-old singer with an open bottle of wine.  

The "Forever and Ever, Amen" singer was hauled to a nearby jail around 1:30 AM -- he was booked, cited and released a short time later.

What was he doing in Sanger TX??? That is a very small town on the side of a major highway in the boondocks!!! Was he lost??? Crazy he was by himself in this town. Highway Patrol must have found him.

Guess what guys! Randy is human, he makes mistakes, but, I must say, although he was not driving at the time, obviously, he was prior to stopping in front of the church.
Nothing wrong with drinking, as long as you can handle it & there are no issues like alcholism. I'm not sure why anyone would be drinking in front of a church, unless he felt safe there, but why drive? NEVER, EVER DRIVE & DRINK!!! We're praying for you Randy!
