Randy Travis

Threatened to SHOOT, KILL ... Cops Say

8/8/2012 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Randy Travis mug shot
Randy Travis threatened to shoot and kill the troopers who arrested him for drunk driving last night ... this according to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

The GCSO tells us ... officers received a call at 11:18 PM from a person who stated there was a man lying in the roadway.  When cops arrived to the scene, they noticed Travis' 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had driven off the road and slammed into several barricades in a construction zone.

Travis was initially arrested for DWI -- but once he was inside the cop car, officials say the singer threatened to "shoot and kill the Troopers working the case."

As we previously reported, Travis was NAKED ... and rode bareback while he was being transported to the station.

When he arrived to the jail, cops gave Travis a shirt to wear for his mug shot ... and a paper suit to cover his man parts.

Travis is sporting a black eye and cuts in his mug shot -- injuries we're told he suffered when he crashed his car into the construction zone. 

Travis was charged with DWI and retaliation for making the threats. Travis is currently in custody.

8:45 AM PT -- Randy has been released from custody after posting $21,500 bail.

RT has always been a fave with me as far as his music goes...and --in the past-- he has always behaved as a true cowboy.

I will pray for him.

Awe dam, he seemed like a nice guy. It's a shame when people can't handle something and then crash (metaphorically speaking). Perhaps some chemicals are involved. He needs help, not derision.

Seeing this makes me sad. What a meteoric fall this man has had. I hope he gets some help, and I hope he finally comes out of the closet and finds some inner peace.

Sad to hear he's having these problems. He always seemed like one of the nicest guys in country music. Amazing how alcohol can change you.

He should have stayed home 2 drink, & not be driving. He could have killed someone or even himself. He needs 2 be more responsible.
