Travis' rep tells TMZ, "Randy's behavior was extremely altered the evening of his arrest due to the state of his mental health, and substances in his body, causing him to do and say things that were entirely out of character," adding he suffered a severe concussion as a result of the crash.
The rep goes on ... "Randy is deeply apologetic for his actions that evening. A man of integrity with a good heart, Randy does not and will never condone these type of actions that distort the true beliefs of Randy Travis and his entire family."
12/5/17 -- Travis' lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ:
"Randy Travis is a legend who will always be known for his influential singing voice and his contribution to country music; not for a single automobile accident and comments he made after he suffered a horrific car accident striking his skull against the windshield of his car and then the pavement. Randy has lived his life as an ambassador of goodwill, tolerance and acceptance. Cultural diversity is evident in his songs and actions. Randy took responsibility and apologized for his statements 5 years ago and his apology was accepted by the troopers. We now pray for Randy's full recovery.
