BREAKING REPORT – Randy Travis Arrested Overnight in Texas [VIDEO]
UPDATED INFO COURTESY OF ABC NEWS RADIO –
Sgt. Ricky Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office in Sherman, Texas confirms to ABC News Radio that state troopers responded to a call at 11:18 p.m. Tuesday night reporting a man lying on the road outside of the town of Tioga. They discovered Travis at the scene with a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication” and arrested him for DUI.
On the way to the station, Travis allegedly threatened to shoot and kill the troopers, which resulted in an additional charge of retaliation and obstruction, which is a felony. Sgt. Wheeler also says Travis was brought to the station naked, though it’s unclear whether Travis was discovered naked or somehow disrobed later.
Travis was booked and held overnight, then released Wednesday after posting a total of $21,500 bond, $20,000 of which was for the felony charge.
Sherman is located about 60 miles north of Dallas, Texas. Tioga is roughly 25 miles southwest of Sherman.
