Country superstar Randy Travis was arrested for public intoxication in Dallas this morning after being discovered by police drinking alcohol in front of a Baptist church.
According to TMZ, the Sanger Police Department dispatched officers to the church after witnesses reported a suspicious vehicle parked outside. Police reportedly arrived to discover the 52-year-old singer clutching an open bottle of wine with his speech slurred and the smell of alcohol on his breath.
A police report obtained by TMZ says Travis blamed his bad behavior on a recent fight with his girlfriend, although, according to one officer, “Mr. Travis’ speech was slurred and I was beginning to have a hard time understanding what he was saying.”
After the singer stumbled from his car, he was arrested and carted to a nearby jail around 1:30 in the morning. He was booked, cited and released shortly afterwards.
