I wonder if he left his house naked, or took off his clothes in the car. Crazy.
This is getting me so horny
thread useless w/o pics . . .
[quote]I can't wait until Tim McGraw starts having his breakdowns.
Eh, Tim McGraw is too stable for this shit, and he's not gay. Gay-friendly, but not gay. Also, he started losing his looks a few years ago.
What happened to his face?
I want to know why he was naked. Masturbating? Tricking?
I'll bet he was meeting with a guy or trolling for men, or maybe flashing people.
On the one hand, I could stay and be your lover man, but the reason I must go are these handcuff bands...
Were there any rest stops nearby?
God this is hot.
The mug shot is hot so don't even try and say it isn't.
I busted two loads already to it. Guy must be hung like a mule.
No memory of having starred
Atones for later disregard
Or keeps the end from being hard.
I think R7 is right, no evidence, it just makes me smile.
He looks like Bea Arthur in that mug shot. He even has her "Walter, shut up!" look down.
The closet is a lonely place for some...
What would Streisand say?
any nekkid pictures?
OP's link isn't working, but the article on Yahoo makes it sound more serious
[quote]He was charged Wednesday with a felony of "retaliation" for his alleged aggression toward the officer, as well as the expected DWI. Bond is set at $20k and $1500.00, respectively, for the two charges.
Another DWI is probably not as troublesome as felony conviction for trying to attack a policeman.
Randy Travis is a mess. A good hard spanking and a thorough enema would do him a world of good. I wonder if he hangs out in DL.
THE spanking and enema fairy soon to be coronated as Queen
Wow, he must really miss and love his ex-wife. Poor thing is falling apart without her.
Did they really put him in jail? How old is he?
r28, he is 53. And I still say all he needs is to have his ass paddled good once in a while and he'll be right as rain, maybe he might even come out of the closet and become and altruistic citizen, but first........
OP nailed it. The closet is a bad place to live.
They put him in paper clothes in order to finally discharge him. He didn't have anyone to call to bring him clothes?
Not that I'm doubting you guys but how do people know he's gay? I really don't know much about him and heard some vague rumors in passing but nothing concrete.
What's the gossip about him?
Are you serious, R32?
All the evidence you need is that he married this woman:
Maybe he should've stayed married to her if he's going to pull this shit.
Randy looks like he has a HUGE cock. All tall and skinny guys do.
rofl r33 I see your point. But seriously, what's the gossip about him? Anything concrete? Specifics?
A post in a previous thread claimed that his wife said he hired male strippers in her divorce filing, but Google only lead back to that thread.
Do you think it's possible for someone who has been so rigidly in the closet for so long to ever be comfortable with the idea of coming out, let along actually go through with it?
I've seen him around a few times. He always looked sour about something.
When the gay gossip was at its peak, he married the older woman who has been his manager for many years. She knew she was going to be his beard but it seems that now she decided the contract didn't pay enough.
We live for stuff like this!!!!
I wasn't a country fan at all but I remember that even though I was 10 or 11 at the time I was aware of the gay rumors (I don't know how, my parents let me read everything and that included a lot of trashy magazines) and when I saw the wedding photos in PEOPLE I knew they were faking. Randy and his spouse were my first understanding of bearding.
Randy Travis is not tall.
He needs to come out. Otherwise, this wouldn't be happening.
So does that arrest photo knock Nick Nolte from #1?
Nasty looking man.
He's almost as hot as Lyle Lovett.
The singer has tour dates scheduled starting August 17, as well as a benefit performance for a veterans' charity at Tampa's [bold]Republican National Convention[/bold] August 29.
Typical Pubbie closet case!
No country singer will ever come out unless their singing days are over. It's hard enough in mainstream and rock but in Country? No way.
And look who is audience is. I take it he's state fair circuit material now. They draw has beens who draw audiences with has been tastes and mores.
I heard from studio people who hated recording with him because he could never sing on key. Many takes. And that was when he was big. Always seemed like a nice guy living a fake life. Pity.
Digging up bones?
Digging up boners.
He looks downright sociopathic in his mugshot. Total shark eyes. Scary. Very very scary. If looks could kill . . .
I'm surprised by how short he is according to the mug shot. Always assumed he was over 6 feet.
Poor Randy. Marrying a 70 year old woman will never give fulfill your cravings. Just ask Hugh Jackman.
Looking at that pic of his wife, I would think she was a transvestite if I didn't know better.
Is Randy still going to the GOP convention at the end of August?
When the cops found him he was lying naked in the road. There must not have been too much traffic.
Apparently he went to the local 7-11 naked to buy smokes before he wound up in the ditch.
He divorced Elizabeth Travis in 2010 after 19 years, but retained her services as his manager, a role she held for more than three decades.
Earlier this year, though, Elizabeth Travis filed a lawsuit claiming that Randy Travis made it impossible for her to do her job and terminated her management contract without proper notice.
Randy Travis countersued in May, accusing his ex-wife of divulging confidential information about him to damage his reputation and career.
[quote] Apparently he went to the local 7-11 naked to buy smokes before he wound up in the ditch.
I have a distant cousin who did things like that when he was still closeted, and still drinking. Bottle up your sexuality for long enough and another bottle will lead you to do bizarre things to let the world (or the cute 7-11 clerk) know you're available
What a sad case. He sounds like he's along in the world. Why did he choose to beard with someone so old? If he'd chosen someone younger at least he might have a kid or two. I realize she was the most convenient, but it sure didn't help stop the rumors. I wonder if, despite not having any sort of romantic relationship, she wouldn't have been able to deal with another beard.
Another report said he was first drew attention to himself a little earlier when he went into in his local 7-11 drunk and NAKED and attempted to buy cigarettes.
Unfortunately, as he was NAKED he had no money on him to pay so he left the store empty-handed and angry after quarrelling with the store clerk about it.
He next turned up some distance away, laying NAKED in the middle of the road, having just run his car into a tree (or lamppost).
This is where the cops found him.
The rest you know.
Apologies for the extra "was" in the first sentence.
Not to worry R67. It made you sound as SHOCKED and AGHAST as I was.
Perhaps he was visiting Matthew McConnaughey and he sent him out for groceries.
I had a roll of quarters with me but ... well never mind. The clerk probably didn't want those anyway.
OMG, he walked into the [italic]convenience store naked[/italic]? What was he under the influence of to have stripped? I'm thinking of that cannibal killer who had removed his clothes by the time he reached his victim.
Do you think he and his manager wife ever, you know, did it?
[quote]Do you think he and his manager wife ever, you know, did it?
Do you think there's enough Viagra in the world to make anyone want to, you know, do it with her?
I'm guessing Not R72.
Wonder if it was caught on the store's security camera.
How fucking drunk can one person possibly get to walk into a store naked? Wow.
Poor fellow -- what a mess...
It really is pitiful.
R76, I think he was probably hoping for the best.
Other than some ancient tabloid story, why exactly do we think he is gay?
R66, thank you for repeating what we already knew about his being NAKED all over Texas, but would you please refresh yourself on the correct use of "lie" and "lay"? He was lying in the middle of the road, not laying in it. If he was as drunk as he seems to have been, nobody was being laid in that road.
Is it true that he was naked when they found him? I heard he was naked.
And he demanded a second opinion on the body cavity search....
It's worth pointing out that he used to have an amazing, hot, muscular body. He worked out a lot. Maybe he figures that's all he has left.
Anyway that was one indication to me that he was gay.
Like without any clothes on? In the nude?
Where are the Security cam photos?!
I am suitably chastened, R81.
would love to walk around naked and take a dump like a gorilla. so freeing.
Who beat his ass down to make his face look like it does in that mug shot?
When was that, r85??? Pics, please.
Dying laughing here - I thought this thread was about Randy Newman and I couldn't figure out how it'd gotten so many responses till I clicked on it .
I wonder if the clerk in the store realized the naked guy was Randy Travis.
As I'm reading this thread, I can't help but wonder how many drunks in rural America are driving around naked in this heatwave. You really do have to wonder. If one drunk guy thought it was a good idea at the time, there must be others out there.
But I'm still reeling from the allegation that he was found sans clothing, as if he had nothing covering his body.
Why don't more celebrities do this? Can you imagine, say, Mel Gibson leaving his place drunk [italic]sans clothing[/italic] at 1:00 a.m. to get smokes? And he quarrels with some Pakistani guy at the Malibu 7-11 his dick a floppin', then he angrily gets in his car drives off only to be found later lying naked on the PCH?
Naked, you say? Golly.
The reason I doubt the gay rumors is because wouldn't someone who's THIS drunk THIS often slip up and get caught? He's never had any toilet/cruising arrests like George Michael or any gay nightclub make-out sessions like Andy Dick or any obviously fake "I Cheated with a Female Stripper" tabloid stories like Matt LeBlanc. It's not easy to stay closeted when you're an alcoholic, but we're not seeing the type of incidents we usually see with closeted or semi-closeted stars.
Well, his ex-wife/manager did accuse him of hiring male strippers at one point. I think she said that in a court filing. I dunno. Could she go that far without having something to back herself up?
Maybe it's a well-kept secret in his little rural neck of the woods and people keep it to themselves like so many open secrets in small towns. If outsiders don't go to bumfucked, they'd never know. Not like the townsfolk would ever trust outsiders enough to talk to them.
Ultimately, who knows.
I'm very disappointed that he smokes.
[quote]The reason I doubt the gay rumors is because wouldn't someone who's THIS drunk THIS often slip up and get caught?
How are you certain that he wasn't coming from a gay hook-up gone wrong? Can you be sure he was alone in the car when it crashed?
Naked, you say? Golly.
There was nothing left in that closet except outfits made of rhinestones, rawhide and regret. Oh, and one big blond beard.
"Well, his ex-wife/manager did accuse him of hiring male strippers at one point."
Link, please? I googled it and found nothing.
As a fellow (recovering) drunk, my heart goes out to any alcoholic who still suffers.
Randy, check into Hazeldon for a nice long stay, embrace your gayness and re-emerge as a sober, out-of-the closet country music star.
I've always admired your voice. I'll be your fan.
[quote]There was nothing left in that closet except outfits made of rhinestones, rawhide and regret.
"Rhinestones, Rawhide and Regret" would be a great title for a country music biography, a leather-drag show, Kristin Chenoweth's next cabaret act, a documentary about a gay rodeo, or, frankly, just about anything.
Randy and Brent Corrigan ought to do a porn flick together.
It would sell.
Crystal Tweekers get naked because their body temperature goes so high. They don't do it for sexual reasons, they're trying to cool down.
He's been arrested AGAIN. For misdeameanor assault. Seems he got into it with a man and the man's wife in a parking lot. Or something like that. This man is a train wreck!
Grammy-winning country star Randy Travis has been cited for assault in a fight outside a church in a Dallas suburb after the singer stepped into an argument between an estranged husband and wife, police said on Friday.
The incident happened on Thursday night in the parking lot of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, said the city's police spokesman, who downplayed reports that the singer was drunk at the time.
"Witnesses are reporting and our investigation revealed that Mr. Travis assaulted the husband," said Officer David Tilley, adding that Travis was a friend of the woman.
Randall has some problems going on????
I remember him from Touched By An Angel
Randy Travis admits driving drunk, gets probation
By JAMIE STENGLE, Associated Press | January 31, 2013 | Updated: January 31, 2013 8:55pm
SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — Randy Travis pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated Thursday in a case that began last summer when the country music star was found naked after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am.
Travis received two years of probation, a $2,000 fine and a 180-day suspended jail sentence. If he doesn't successfully complete the probation, he will face the jail time.
He was ordered to spend at least 30 days at an alcohol treatment facility, complete 100 hours of community service and have an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he operates while on probation.
Travis, 53, entered the plea in a court in the North Texas city of Sherman. The misdemeanor was punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
As the singer walked out of the Grayson County Courthouse, he thanked the court and his supporters. He also acknowledged two patrolmen for "obviously taking care of me that night."
"I'm glad it's behind me," he said of the case.
Authorities have said a Trans Am registered to Travis veered off a road Aug. 7 near Tioga, a town about 60 miles north of Dallas where the entertainer lives. The car struck several barricades in a construction zone.
Prosecutors said Travis was found lying in the roadway naked and was belligerent at the scene and while being transported to a hospital. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.21. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.
The country star, whose hits include "Forever and Ever, Amen," walked out of jail the next morning wearing scrubs, no shoes and a baseball cap.
Travis also had faced a charge of retaliation for allegedly threatening officers, but as part of the plea agreement he will no longer face that charge.
Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said Travis' punishment is appropriate and "considerably more than is typically received on a DWI case."
"First time DWI defendants are rarely forced into in-patient treatment," Brown said in a news release. "He will be unable to leave the facility for 30 days. His fine and community service requirements are more than double what is usually received, and his probation term is the maximum available, and longer than the usual 18 months. All of that is appropriate in light of his behavior with the officers."
On Thursday, the judge in the case agreed with a defense motion asking that the arrest video and transcript not be released to the public.
Travis' lawyers have previously said the singer has a great deal of respect for law enforcement and has stopped drinking alcohol.
The August accident was among a string of recent run-ins with the law for Travis.
Police in suburban Dallas cited Travis following an Aug. 23 incident in a church parking lot in which he allegedly intervened in an argument involving a woman he knows and her estranged husband. Nobody was hurt.
Larry Friedman, one of his attorneys, said Travis pleaded no contest in that case in January. In an agreement with prosecutors, he got 90 days' deferred adjudication, meaning it will be removed from his record if he does not get involved in another assault in that time period.
Travis also was arrested last February in Denton County, northwest of Dallas, for public intoxication after police spotted a vehicle parked in front of a church and found an open bottle of wine and Travis smelling of alcohol. That case is no longer on file with the county court and appears to have been dismissed.
Randy Travis Sues Over DWI Dashcam Video
By Betty Wang on May 20, 2013 1:28 PM
Country star Randy Travis is suing over some naked, drunken driving arrest footage, reports the Austin American-Statesman.
It was just earlier this year in January when Travis pleaded guilty to a charge of driving under the influence. The incident itself occurred in August 2012, when Travis was found stark naked at the scene of a car accident he was involved in. His reported blood-alcohol level was also 0.21%, well over Texas' legal limit of 0.08%.
A judge had originally granted Travis' request to block the video from being released. But the Texas attorney general's office is now stepping in.
The Dashcam Debate
Generally speaking, dashcam video can be released and made available to the public, after a request has been processed according to the respective state's public records act.
Under the Texas Public Information Act, public information can be made available to anybody. Public information is any information collected in connection with the transaction of official government business. The dashcam video of Travis in his birthday suit would seem to fall under this category.
But while the judge in Travis' case agreed to withhold Travis' DWI dashcam video, the Texas attorney general's office ruled this month that some info related to Travis' arrest must be made public. That includes Travis' DWI arrest video.
The Attorney General's Ruling
The attorney general's May 3 ruling states that some of the information requested -- like medical records and motor-vehicle records -- must be withheld, according to the American-Statesman.
But the AG's office also ruled that the judge did not have the power to prevent the dashcam video from being released. That's what led Travis to sue.
It is unknown at this point whether or not Travis will be successful. But according to Texas law, it would seem that nothing can stop members of the public from making requests to get their hands on the much sought-after footage.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
