Country star Randy Travis has blamed his heavy partying following the Super Bowl for his public intoxication arrest in the early hours of Monday (06Feb12).
Police in Dallas, Texas found the singer/actor sitting in his car near a Baptist church while allegedly holding an open bottle of wine.
He was taken into custody and cited for the crime, and was released hours later.
Travis had initially told cops his drunken state was the result of a fight with his girlfriend.
Now he's apologising to fans for his behaviour, admitting he had continued boozing after watching the American football championship game on Sunday (05Feb12).
A statement issued to TheWrap.com reads: "I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl. I'm committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions."
