Randy Travis

Locals RUSHED to Jail

to Give Him $$$, Clothes

8/9/2012 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0809_gary_randy_travis_APRandy Travis was NOT wearing a Texas Longhorns hat at the time of his naked arrest ... it was a gift from a local attorney who rushed to the jail the second he heard the country star was in trouble. 

TMZ has learned ... moments after word got out about Travis' arrest, several locals raced over to the jail to help out -- one man posted Randy's cash bond and another man offered legal services right away.

The lawyer was Gary Corley ... who tells TMZ the area around Sherman, TX is a close-knit community where the people take care of each other ... and he wanted to "do the humanitarian thing" and help Travis.

0809_randy_travis_mug_subassetWhen Corley arrived to the jail, he briefly met with Randy, offered his services, and told him about the legion of photographers waiting outside the jail to shoot the singer.

Corley tells us he was wearing his Texas hat at the time, but decided Randy probably needed it more ... and literally gave him the cap right off of his head so the singer could shield his face from shutterbugs on his way out.

We're told Corley had a car waiting for Travis in case he wanted a ride ... but the man who posted  Randy's cash bond had already arranged for transportation ... so Randy went with his money man.

So far, we're told Randy has not officially hired an attorney ... but Corley says he'll be there if he needs him.

Not guilty! I'm sure many sober people crash their car while driving naked around 3am then lay down in the middle of the road!

if he had hit another car and kill someone, would those people still be rushing over to help his stupid ass out? if you're driving drunk, you need to be charged with attempted murder, because that's exactly what the **** it is...

Of course, 'the friendly state' since Randy was in a sad state.

All would have been fine had Randy been raised by Kathi Lee Gifford.

Yeah, sure the lawyer was being nice - trying to score a big whale of a client.

Doing the humane thing my ass. Corley just wanted to represent a famous singer. If he was doing the humane thing, he wouldn't have talked to the waiting press outside….which he obviously did.

Like one of my amazing friends once said, a case of 'poor bastard' syndrome.

The "humanitarian thing" would have been to raise $21000 and donated it to MADD, and let Randy Travis spend his own dang money to bail his sorry butt out of jail. There is a WIDE berth between "good guy" and "fame whore."
