In Court This Morning, Randy Travis Pleaded Not Guilty to Assault Charge, Says Not to Believe All That Drinking-Problem Stuff
August was a wild month for Randy Travis, what with the naked arrest in Greyson County followed two weeks later by a scuffle in the parking lot of a Plano church that resulted in a citation for misdemeanor assault.
On that first point, the country singer says he's now sober as a judge. As to the second, Travis stance is that he was merely being chivalrous. Travis' attorney, Larry Friendman, told TMZ that his client had intervened after his fiancee and her estranged husband got into an argument outside Prestonwood Baptist Church.
That news came just before Travis was scheduled to appear this morning in a Plano municipal courtroom, where he entered a plea of not guilty. He also apparently had a few words for his fans.

As far as what we're supposed to do with that mental image of Travis sprawled buck naked across a country road, he apparently gave no advice.
