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.

Alcoholism is a hard thing for a family member to watch. The person is usually in denial and the loved ones are helpless to do anything. God bless randy and hope he gets serious help.

Travis, what the hell is wrong with you, get your act together, apologize for your shortcomings, and enjoy the good life while you can. I lost my mate and my unborn son on Oct. 4th, 1974, to a drunk driver. At the time, she was 23 years old I was 24, and I thought that if this is all life has to offer I don't want any part of it, so I crawled into a whiskey bottle and swam around for a year, then it occurred to me where I was headed and I didn't want to go there so I crawled back out of the whiskey bottle. It's been a long hard road for me, but I still love life and what it has to offer. Don't become another statistic dude.

Here in Phoenix, where we've had a lot of buck naked crimes this year, it's always due to bath salts.
