Randy Travis


During DWI Arrest

8/8/2012 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


7:54 AM PT -- Sources tell TMZ ... Travis was BUCK NAKED when cops arrived to the crash scene. It's unclear why Travis was not wearing clothes.

We're also told the country singer refused to take a breathalyzer, so a blood draw was taken to determine his blood alcohol level.

We've also learned ... before the DWI arrest, someone called cops to complain that a naked Travis walked into a convenient store and tried to buy cigarettes.

6:24 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... Travis was charged with "retaliation" because he verbally threatened a cop during the bust.

Country singer Randy Travis was arrested last night in Texas on suspicion of DWI after crashing his car, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Randy was arrested around 11:59PM with minor cuts and bruises. He was also booked on a "retaliation and obstruction" charge ... a felony.

Randy's car was the only vehicle involved in the crash.

Other details surrounding Randy's arrest are unclear. Randy is still in custody.

It's the singer's 2nd arrest this year -- back in February, Randy was busted for public intoxication for allegedly boozing in front of a Baptist church. According to the police report, Randy said he had just gotten into a fight with his girlfriend.

What do you expect? He hangs out with the short German preacher that wants a fight with the Muslims. HE is about as full of himself as He has ever been and once again He thinks "God loves me so I can drink and have no problems."
I hope he has a never ending hangover headache and gets books thrown at him.

Randy married his manager much for the same reason Rock Hudson married his in the 1950's. But this is 2012 and nobody cares. Clean up your act, get some help then pick up your guitar again son.

Randy is a terrific talent and needs to get back to that. He's going through a horrible divorce from a woman he never should have married in the first place, but she did all she could to sink her claws in him and now she's trying to ruin/clean him out. Liz was a "ho" way back when, but Randy felt sorry for her and stepped into her mess. He'd be rid of her at any cost if it wasn't for his children. Get help, Randy, and show her the much better person is here. Show the world just how great you really are as a person. We know it's in there, but has gotten lost in all this mess you are going through. Remember, there are those of us that do care and love you. Don't let that sorry excuse for a wife get the upper hand on all this. She isn't worth it in the long run anyway. She can't get anyone else to hire her so let her scream about her so-called "career". She didn't have one until you and won't afterwards either.

Old Randy has become an alcoholic. I became an alcoholic around the age of 33--where I crossed over that line of no return. The brain never forgets. Even if I wanted to go back and be able to drink like a normal person I crossed that line long ago. It doesn't matter that you weren't an alcoholic when you were 25...Alcoholism is a progressive disease and Randy has crossed that line. Seek help because this disease will not stop until it kills you and lands you in jail.
