Randy Travis, This Time Fully Clothed,
Arrested Cited This Morning at Plano Church
Travis, after his arrest in Grayson County earlier this month.
Update at 11:47 a.m.: The AP has a few more details. Travis apparently knew the woman who was arguing with her estranged husband. No one was injured, but Travis and another woman were both ticketed for simple assault, a Class C misdemeanor. The police report does not indicate that alcohol was involved in the incident.
Update at 12:16 p.m.: Plano Police Department spokesman David Tilley called me back and confirmed the above details. No one was taken taken to jail, and all parties refused transport to the hospital. There was no indication that Travis was drunk.
Tilley said that the incident occurred at Prestonwood Baptist between 10 and 10:30 p.m. "Supposedly at that location in the parking lot there was a field trip had dispersed," he said, but had no other details.
Travis, who was "extremely intoxicated" according to the gossip site, intervened in a family argument between a husband and wife in a church parking lot. Both men were taken to the hospital, and Travis was cited for simple assault. This is the second time in six months Travis has been arrested after being found drunk in a church parking lot.
All this is just days after an Ohio concert in which he told the audience, "I tell you what, when you drunk, you got to be careful."
