Randy Travis has an explanation for why he was stumbling drunk in front of a church -- he had just gotten in a fight with his girlfriend.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops observed Randy sitting in a black car with no lights on just after midnight Monday.  When they approached the vehicle, they couldn't help but notice Randy reeked of booze.

The arresting officer says Randy tried to explain the fight with his girlfriend ... but "Mr. Travis' speech was slurred and I was beginning to have a hard time understanding what he was saying."

Randy made an awkward stumbling exit from the vehicle -- as most drunk people do, and that's when the officer hooked him up and placed him under arrest for public intoxication.

Cops say they poured out the rest of the booze -- and towed Randy's car from the scene.

Travis was cited ... and released a short time later.

So he didn't get charged with a DUI because he was parked? Still I'm sure with an open container, his insurance rates will go up. He probably won't even notice since he's got bank. Which reminds me, awesome site for awesome low car insurance rates. I just found it!!!

This happened in a podunk town about 45 minutes north of Dallas. Trust me, they would have charged him with a DUI if they could have, the Denton County police do not care who you are! I just wanna know what the hell he was doing in Sanger, and buying a house in Tioga, really? I'm from the Dallas area, and I wouldn't live there if you paid me!

They did you a favor Randy and kept you from driving off and possibly killing someone.

Technically he was on private property and unless the church pressed charges, it was a bogus bust.
