Tough Year For Randy Travis

Country music stars are known for their affinity to booze. They are free to drink whenever they want, but they should never get behind the wheel if they’ve had too much to drink.

The year 2012 was a challenging year for Randy Travis. The legendary artist celebrated 25 years in the music business by launching The 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour and releasing his Anniversary Celebration duets album which featured Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Kris Kristofferson, Carri Underwood, George Jones, Zac Brown Band, Lorrie Morgan, Jamey Johnson and more. He also saw his fair share of legal troubles.

Travis was arrested in Sanger, Texas in the early morning hours of February 6 on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication. He was spotted in front of the First Baptist Church in Sanger with an open bottle of wine. Travis was taken to Denton where he was booked into the county jail and released a few hours later. Travis issued a public apology following the incident.

Travis’ legal woes didn’t end there. In August, he was arrested near his in home Tioga, Texas and charged with driving while intoxicated. He was found naked and lying in the road having crashed his 1998 Pontiac Trans Am off the side of the road and into several barricades in a construction zone. He also faced a charge of retaliation or obstruction after threatening a state trooper.

Less than two weeks later, Travis was cited for a Class C simple assault after he allegedly got into a fight with his girlfriend’s estranged husband, who was also cited, according to USA Today. The altercation took place in a church parking lot and alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

Travis’ lawyer Larry Friedman recently issued a statement to TMZ saying that the singer has given up alcohol and is focused on living a healthier lifestyle. He has reportedly returned to the studio to start working on a new album.

If you or a loved one were the victim of a car accident that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

It’s possible that the recent events in the life of Randy Travis will be included in the lyrics of his next hit single that will top the country music charts.

Travis, who pleaded no contest to public intoxication following the Super Bowl in February, was arrested again Tuesday after being found naked, smelling apparently of alcohol and lying on a remote stretch of roadway in northern Texas just before midnight, authorities said.

He was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and felony retaliation, after allegedly threatening to fatally shoot highway patrol troopers who responded to a concerned caller who notified authorities of “a man lying in the roadway” Tuesday. The DWI offense is a misdemeanor, authorities said.

While in custody, Travis allegedly threatened “to shoot and kill the troopers working the case.”

Travis, 53, allegedly refused to take a blood and breath test, and was later forced to submit to a judge’s order for a blood specimen taken at a nearby hospital, Wheeler said.

Travis was driving his black 1998 Pontiac Trans Am when the vehicle drove off the north side of a two-lane highway just west of Tioga, where he resides, and struck several barricades in a construction zone, said Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Tackett.

Travis was the only occupant in the one-vehicle crash, authorities said.

Travis was found naked, Tackett said.

When Travis was brought to Grayson County jail at 3 a.m., after the hospital visit, he still didn’t have clothes.

Travis was released from Grayson County jail after an acquaintance posted his $21,500 bail in cash at 10:40 a.m. Wednesday.

It’s not clear whether Travis was injured in the accident, though his mug shot revealed a bruised right eye and several abrasions on his face.

Neither Travis nor his representative could be reached for comment Wednesday.

Travis, who has sold more than 20 million records, has won seven Grammy Awards, 10 Academy of Country Music statuettes, 10 American Music Awards, seven Music City News awards, five Country Music Association honors and eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, according to his website.

Travis has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1986, his website said.

Travis is now commemorating 25 years of making music with an Anniversary Celebration CD, which also features Country Music Hall of Fame members Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson; also on the CD are Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Don Henley, among other stars, his website said.

In February, Travis was arrested for public intoxication while sitting in his car in front of a church in Sanger, Texas.

On June 25, Travis’ attorney entered a no-contest plea on the singer’s behalf before Sanger Municipal Court Judge Kenneth Hartless. Travis didn’t appear in court.

Travis paid a $264 fine and was placed on a 90-day deferred, or probationary, status.

The 90-day probation period expires September 23, when the ticket violation will be erased from his record as long as Travis doesn’t commit another offense in Denton County.

Travis’ alleged offense this week won’t impact his probation in Sanger because the incident occurred in another county in Texas.

Public intoxication, a class C violation of the municipal code, is an offense typically disposed of by the Sanger courts with a fine and a 90-day probation.

In February, Sanger police found a vehicle parked in front of a Baptist church in the very early morning hours and, upon investigation, discovered Travis in the car with an open bottle of wine.

Police said the singer smelled of alcohol. Travis was arrested and taken to the Denton County jail.

Travis was given a citation and held because of intoxication until 7:44 a.m., at which time he was released.
