Randy Travis, the wiry, multi-platinum-selling country crooner with a golden voice that carries enough bass to rattle your silverware, had a tough 2012. In February, he was cited and arrested for public intoxication in front of a Sanger church during the wee morning hours. Later that year, he strode into a Pilot Point convenience store in naught but his skin, purchased cigarettes and shortly thereafter crashed his Trans Am into a construction-zone barricade on a farm-to-market road near his home in Tioga. Another driver came along and discovered a naked Travis sprawled in the middle of the road. He thought the body on the asphalt was a dead deer at first.
"I'm spooked out," the man told a 911 operator. "I don't see a vehicle. There's a couple of cones scattered."
When state troopers responded to the scene, Travis -- a bantamweight at best -- allegedly tried to fight them. On the ride to a local hospital, they claim he threatened to shoot them too. In his mugshot, Travis is indeed sporting a pretty nice shiner, but we'll never truly know what transpired on that deserted stretch of country road -- unless, that is, we see the dashcam video from the squad car.More »
