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.

It is a shame, He has gone back to his old ways, before becoming a well known singer. He does not have Liv to watch over him now after his divorce from her.

If he doesn't go to prison he may use this to change his image (which he appears to have done) and relaunch his flagging career with some hard core red neck music.

The guy has a big problem. I feel sorry for him that it got this bad and he didn't have people to help him stop hurting himself.

Somehow, this does NOT surprise me - we've had a number of celebrities (singers, actors, et. al.) apparently driving under the influence of a drug (or alcohol) - later, these people would be arrested, and if the was NOT too much drama in it, we'd hear about this.

The Country music culture celebrates mediocrity.

This is no surprise for someone who is marinated in that culture as a livelihood. No surprise whatsoever.
