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.

I hate to say it but this guy goes to the top of the celebrity dead pool list. I think he'll go before Betty White. He needs big time intervention fast!

Obviously all you downers know NOTHING about alcoholism or dependency. A weak person...? Either you know nothing or choose not to care. This man is in pain as with countless millions but hey! it's not effecting you (laugh and enjoy)....someday you will cross "something" that you will not be able to handle, you'll ask for help with hand held out and there will be nobody there. I wish we could turn the world back 50 years and have true empathy amongst us again instead of the soulless wannabe gangsters that society is belching out.

Who cares what redneck hillbillies do when they go to their clubhouse of imagination and chant to their sky daddies?

Who cares what some drunken redneck hillbilly does when he gets together with other delusional rednecks on Sunday to chant to their imaginary friends. The only thing stupider than a country redneck is a religious country redneck.

Randy's lawyer stated:

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

The reality of this is that Randy and his girlfriend are adulters. She is still married. He should not be with her nor her with him. What is wrong with socieity today when it is seemingly okay to cheat on a spouse. The article states that Randy got into a fight with his girlfriends estranged husband. Estranged or not, he is still the husband. It is only when people start honoring their marriage vows, stop cheating (yes, like it or not, if you are still married and seeing someone else it's cheating) will we see a more moral society. Sadly, I used to think Mr. Travis was a good Christian man but now I see him for who he really is; an adulterer.

What needs to happen here is Randy Travis needs help with his addiction. Randy needs a stint in Rehab and until someone steps in and puts him there he will continue this behavior.

Until Randy has checked himself into Rehab for his addiction this erratic behavior will continue. Someone needs to step in and help Randy with his addiction.Hopefully but sadly it is going to be the legal system as he is headed for prison. What a waste of a good contry singer who cannot handle the pressure. To the person who spoke about him and his girl friend . There is no revelancy about him and her. Randy is an addict and this is the big picture. So whether or not she is married has nothing to do with the big picture.

Fans: At first news of his first drunk episode I was offended.
Why, I placed him in a pedestal where he is above and beyond being an actual human being. Heck, alcoholism/drug addiction is medically classified as disease?!? And anyone in every walks of life was/is/will struggle with it whether talented or not. For one classified as one. The only solution is "total abstinance" or end up being victim of ones own self!!!
Randy, love enjoy your songs... I trust and believe you will figure solution to what you are currently experiencing. It is like; "Life is process of discovery and solutions to problems of life. It is just part of being human" Best of luck!!!
