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.

THANK YOU for using the correct "buck naked" and not the incorrect but universal mistake "butt naked". I'm amazed.

Damn...he had so much talent and potential, but he was too stupid and greedy to handle it all like a success.

If he would just come out of the closet already, he wouldn't be losing his mind and drinking so much to try to cope with his secret. Be yourself Randy, you like men, no shame. Then you will be free of your pain.

Show some compassion for this man. Obviously something is wrong. Maybe the divorce is getting to him- it must be a mess to extricate yourself from an over 20 year marriage to your manager. And there are probably other issues. Nobody who is sane would want to be found naked on a road. Randy Travis was my first introduction to country music. Just love his music.Let's hope that he gets help and that it works. May God Bless Randy Travis. I'll be praying for you.

Used to play softball in Nashville with Randy before he became a 'star'. His name was Randy Ray...then, Randy Ray Traywick...Then Randy Traywick...Then Randy Travis. Nice guy - then. Fame and fortune sometimes messes people up. He was always a nice, humble guy who said, "Yessir & Yes Ma'am" to people. Hope he finds himself before it gets late...

Wow, that's what I call a really bad day. He's human, doesn't justy the careless stupidity-but nobody can deny or take away the success and talent that has poured out of this man for decades. Thank God nobody else was injured or even worse. Everybody is so quick to pass judgement or comment on others particularly when something bad happens-more quickly on the celebrities- because face it-it sales papers and magazines. People are calling him idiot and much worse but just because he is a very wealthy celebrity doesn't make him any less human than the rest of us. There is always so much more to the story and behind the story than we know or are ever told. Who among us has the right to judge others based on what the media shares. Where's the rest of the story? You may never know. I am grateful that he is ok and that no others were involved or, injured or killed. Fame and fortune is not everything nor does it make a person any less human or any closer to being superhuman. In the end that is all we are-human. Some more fortnuate than others in various ways-then again -often much less fortunate than others in other varying degrees. SO ALL YOU PERFECT JUDGEMENTAL PEOPLE. SPEND YOUR TIME THINKING OF THE GOOD YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY. SPEND YOUR TIME IN A PROACTIVE POSITIVE FASHION.. DO SOME GOOD, DON'T SLING MUD. Negative energy begets negative reactiions and results. Help a friend in need, hug a loved one.

If Randy Travis was found buck naked and, like Harvey said, they leave him that way, how did he get a black t-shirt in his Mug Shot? Where did the t-shirt come from?

Hey Randy, Get yourself some help. I have met some of your family. You are a good guy and you come from good people. No one is perfect and no one has the right to cast stones at you. Pick your self up and get the help you need to move on with your life. I have always enjoyed your music and I do hope that you get thru all of this OK. Tim.
