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 says … 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 NAKED … so cops gave him some clothes to wear.  Travis was hauled to a nearby jail … where he was booked and posed for a mug shot … sporting cuts and a black eye from the accident.  Travis, 53, who had minor cuts and bruises, was also held on a “retaliation and obstruction” charge, which is a felony.  This marks another run-in with the law for Travis, who was arrested in February on a charge of public intoxication after police found him smelling of alcohol and carrying an open bottle of wine in front of a church.  The Dallas/Fort Worth-area resident told police at the time he’d just gotten in a fight with his girlfriend – he split from his wife of 19 years in 2010 – and he later apologized for his drunken behavior.

 

wow – I hope he gets help with his drinking issues.  I grew up loving his music, I pray that he gets into a recovery program.  I am thankful that he didn’t hurt anyone.  A drunk driver not only puts himself at risk, but everyone around him.  Not even who is on the road, cause a car in the hands of a drunk can end up in a house hurting or killing those inside.  May you find your way back to God Randy, Your higher power will help you find your way.
