When he was arrested for being intoxicated, back in February, the country singer Randy Travis blamed the Super Bowl. Or, rather, he explained that he'd gotten himself a little-over excited about the Super Bowl and ended up so drunk that police officers were forced to bang him up in jail until he sobered up. Yesterday (August 8, 2012), Travis made a spectacle of himself once more, trying to buy cigarettes from a North Texas convenience store whilst drunk. Not only he was he drunk though; Travis was also naked at the time. We're not entirely sure what excuse Travis is going to use this time but we reckon the Olympics might be top of his list.
According to the report from NBC, Randy Travis was arrested following a single-car crash near Tioga. The incident occurred after the owner of a convenience store made a call to police, to report that a man had walked into the store naked, asking to buy cigarettes. When he was asked how he intended to pay for them, he allegedly became "aggravated" before leaving empty-handed. A second call was then logged, from a different caller to say that they had found a man lying in the road. When state troopers responded to the call, Travis refused to give breath or blood samples. He allegedly had a strong smell of alcohol on his breath and was showing other signs of intoxication. Randy Travis' mugshot pretty much explains the whole thing: his face full of cuts and bruises.
Travis was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and during the arrest, the troubled music star threatened to kill the police officer involved, which in itself is another offence. The additional charge of 'retaliation' carries a potential penalty of up to 10 years of prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
