Grammy-winning Christian music superstar Randy Travis was arrested just before midnight on Tuesday in north Texas after being found him drunk and naked near his wrecked truck some 60 miles north of Dallas.
Though he was detained initially in Grayson County on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, a class B misdemeanor, Travis made the situation worse by reportedly threatening to murder a state trooper at the scene, incurring a third-degree felony charge of retaliation that typically carries up to 10 years in prison.
According to NBC DFW, Travis refused a breathalyzer test and subsequently had his blood drawn to determine his level of intoxication. Police said he had an open bottle of wine with in in the vehicle and was slurring his words. He was subsequently released on Wednesday after his girlfriend posted two bonds totaling nearly $22,000.
