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.

People say and do things when they are drunk and don't mean it. Saying he would shoot and kill the cops was the liquor talking. He evidently got drunk, ran his car into a tree and pulled his clothes off clearing away the blood. He should not be driving when drinking and if he has a problem address it and luckily he did not hit anyone.

To my surprise … I’d been revived … seems an hombre done saved our lives!
All I could do is look deep into his eyes -- as this hombre’s lips done melted on mine!
How could two cowboys fall into each others’ arms and realize that love is so real … between two guys …!

When you stop to consider the godawful hayseed drawl that is the trademark of his intolerable "singing" (if you can call it that), it's hard to tell when he's NOT drunk!
