Randy Travis

Threatened to SHOOT, KILL ... Cops Say

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.

He looks like he should be locked up in a hospital for the criminally insane.

Alcohol is a horrible drug and addiction for some people. It will turn some into monsters. I saw this in my own Father. The kindest and gentle-est of people can be affected my this drug. I'm sure that otherwise, from what I have seen, that he is an upstanding and moral man--just can't drink alcohol and be the same person. Prayers for Randy Travis...love his music!
