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.

8:45 AM PT -- Randy has been released from custody after posting $21,500 bail.

We assume it is alchol related and in fact he was drunk but you have to ask if he has mental or emotional problems beyond his drinking problem something very wrong is going on here and drinking and driving is just scratching the surface.

It is so hard to dislike Randy and it is high time we all pull together and let him know he needs serious help. Come on Mr. Travis we are all on your side and we would miss you so much if you hurt yourself and I know in your heart you would never want to hurt anyone else. Living with something like that would take you to another plane that you may never recover from. So lets do it get on the Randy to Recovery Train.

Time for Randy to get marriage counseling and check in to rehab. A very talented, god loving, hard-working man but he has some demons to "kill".

I'd give him something to stay home for and out of trouble. I could keep him occupied. He just needs some TLC.
