According to, Randy Travis was arrested Monday morning in Sanger on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication.

Randy was spotted in front of the First Baptist Church in Sanger with an open bottle of wine, police said.

“A report of a suspicious vehicle was called in to Sanger police. Police go to investigate and find him smelling like alcohol and [he] had an open bottle of wine,” said Tom Reedy, with the Denton County Sheriff’s Department.

Reedy said Sanger officers took Randy to Denton, where he was booked into the county jail at 1:30 a.m. Monday and released a few hours later.

“They take you to jail for at least four hours, time to sober up,” Reedy explained about the Class C misdemeanor, for which Randy was cited.

“I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl,” Randy said through his publicist Monday afternoon. “I’m committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions.”
