2:00 PM PT -- Travis had "bloodshot" eyes and torn clothing following the incident ... this according to the police report.

11:38 AM PT --
A source close to Randy tells TMZ, the singer was NOT drunk, nor had he been drinking. The source says Randy's fiancee and her estranged husband were arguing over visitation of their son and things got violent ... so Randy jumped in.

7:45 AM PT --
The Plano Police Department tells TMZ ... Travis was cited for simple assault. We're told officials believe Randy was the primary aggressor.

Cops say ... there was a "family argument" taking place between a man and a woman ... and Randy got involved.

Randy's lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ ... the woman in the argument is Randy's fiancee, who was arguing with her estranged husband ... when Randy entered the situation. 

Friedman says, "Randy Travis was the only man that came to the rescue ... fortunately even today chivalry is not dead”

Another man was also involved in the fight, but cops say it wasn't the husband.

More trouble for Randy Travis ... TMZ has learned the embattled singer was involved in a FIGHT in a church parking lot in Texas early this morning.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops responded to the church around 1 AM after receiving a tip about two men fighting in the parking lot.

We're told Travis was taken to the hospital after the fight. One source tells us Randy appeared to be "extremely intoxicated."

We're told the fight was over a girl.

Travis has had serious problems with alcohol -- he was arrested for DWI earlier this month after cops say they found the singer naked at the scene of a car crash.

And Travis was busted for public intoxication back in February after cops say he was hammered in a different church parking lot.

Attempts to reach Travis were unsuccessful.

What the hell is wrong with him?! He's old enough to know better. What a weak, WEAK little man. All that talent and money, just pissing it away for a drink. Idiot. I have no sympathy for people like that. At all.

What a pathetic fool. Why doesn't this guy just stay home when he's so drunk? Doesn't anyone care enough about him to get him into treatment?

Southerners and their Church fights - seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. Man, still wish GCB was not cancelled, it actually showed the truth of how these people act. I live in the south, so I am comfortable saying this, these people down here are funny as can be, esp the Baptist after 1pm when they can buy their alcohol.

This guy needs some major help to kick his booze problem. This is just proof that people don't win against drugs and alcohol. Sad.

He was probably in the church parking lot because he wanted to kiss an angel good morning.
