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.

If he stripped down naked, I suspect he was on something other than alcohol...something much stronger and more evil that alcohol. Meth perhaps?

Maybe he just wanted to be drunk and naked like Noah in the Bible.

WHY WOULD THE JUDGE DO ANYTHING? LINDSEY LOHAN IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE. PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED HELP GET NOTHING BUT A SLAP ON THE WRIST WHEN THEY ARE FAMOUS.

Yes, it is confirmed. He was squelching one out of his backside just before he crashed. The thick smell was still in the car, even as they were towing it away hours later.

I have no sympathy for him. The only prayer he's getting out of me is the one to God that there were no innocents involved with this idiot's drunkscapeds.

Wow Randy Travis looks like he was in a Wild West bar brawl in Texas. The guy is obviously a bigtime alcoholic.

These days, I guess he's the male version of drunken actress Briget Nielson who used to be a star in the 80s in movies with Sylvester Stallone.

All he had to do was watch Marty Stuart's problems with DUIs for what NOT to do.

Get it together, Randy. You are better than this.

I so love that he had a Trans Am - please let it have been one of the classics from the 70's/80's

For a minute there I thought that you were talking about Lindsay Lohan or Amanda Bynes. Really Travis. Why couldn't you just write another song!
