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.

What do you expect, from somebody who's living according to the works of the flesh, instead of by the fruit of the Spirit?

I'm not even going to say anything negative. He clearly has a drinking problem. The man who sings "Three Wooden Crosses" and "Forever and Ever Amen" would not threaten to kill someone if he was in his right mind. I really hope he gets help. He is way too talented to do this to himself and his career

I'm more shocked that he was driving a 1998 Trans AM, I guess he's drinking all the money away.

He needs to come clean about his homosexuality. His demons are destroying him. This is his second or third run-in with the law in the past year. Personally, I can not stand his music.
