Randy Travis Takes a Pretty Decent Mugshot

An old Friend of Unfair Park directs our attention to, of all things, TMZ, which says Randy Travis was "arrested in Dallas this morning" for drinkin' some wine in front of the First Baptist Church in Sanger ... which is in Denton County. But, sure enough, there it is on the Denton County website: Travis was booked this morning for public intox, a Class C misdemeanor, then released shortly afterward. Since life is like a country song, all together now: "There'll always be a honky-tonk/With a jukebox in the corner/And someone crying in their beer/And one old hanger-oner/And a lady looking lonely/From a losing love affair/Yeah, there'll always be a honky-tonk somewhere."
