Randy Travis

Wines After Fight with GF

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.

I'm suprised they wrote it up as Randy Travis and not randy traywick, his real name. Did he legally change it?

If he was behind the wheel, it IS a DUI. Another perfect example of "celebrities" getting off where we would be charged to the fullest.

Idiot! He did what a kid would do, not a middle aged man.

He was lucky! His guardian angel must have earned an extra medal for keeping him from hurting or killing someone with what became a deadly weapon he was driving!
AA members would tell him that booze is just a crutch; a temporary help to get through one's pain.
This is a cry for help. Help is at your nearest AA meeting, Randy!
Love you!

When did he divorce his long time older wife/manager? She was the one who stuck by him and got him started.

When he was young into his career, he frequented a lot of gay bars. When rumors got out of hand, he quickly married his manager. She was 2.5 times his age, so it was a stunt really. Rock Hudson did the same thing 50+ years ago. Just get better Randy...nobody cares buddy

Did anybody notice that he did not get a DUI when the rest of us would. Even if we were not driving, if we had our keys and were sitting in our car drunk, that would be a DUI and automatic loss of drivers license. At least in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississipi, Louisiana and probably any other state. He got celebrity lucky with a charge of "public intoxication", a much lesser penalty.
