Singer Randy Travis Arrested in Texas

Travis, who split with his wife-manager of 19 years Lib Hatcher in 2010, was released after being booked on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication. He issued a statement later apologizing “for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl.”
Police spotted the singer in his vehicle, parked in front of the town's First Baptist Church. The arresting officer said the car smelled of alcohol and contained an open bottle of wine, also reporting that Randy was slurring his speech.

Randy Travis was arrested early Monday after police said they found him seemingly disoriented with an open bottle of wine outside a Texas church, reeking of booze and slurring his words. Is that illegal? Sounds like a pretty decent song. The country star, 52, who was in a parked car, told officers from the town of Sanger he had fought with his girlfriend and was trying to get back to his ranch, 20 miles away.
