Another DWI is probably not as troublesome as felony conviction for trying to attack a policeman.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
