Randy Travis Arrested For Public Intoxication

by at . Comments

Country singer Randy Travis, 52, has issued an apology after being arrested on a charge of public intoxication outside a North Texas church early yesterday morning.

Denton County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Reedy says police in the town of Sanger, Texas, arrested Travis after spotting a vehicle parked in front of a church.

They found an open bottle of wine and Travis smelling of alcohol.

Reedy says Travis, whose country hits include “Forever and Ever, Amen,” was brought to the Denton County jail about 1:30 a.m. and released six hours later.

Travis, who split with his wife-manager of 19 years Lib Hatcher in 2010, was let go after he was booked on the misdemeanor charge of public intoxication.

The singer, who lives in the small town of Tioga near Sanger, apologized in a statement “for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl.”

We can understand that feeling - it was a pretty great game, unless you're Gisele Bundchen - but no need to booze it up in the car outside a church, Randy.
