Nashville’s NewsChannel5.com reports Randy Travis was arrested around midnight Tuesday in north Texas and charged with driving while intoxicated. Sgt. Rickey Wheeler said a Texas trooper arrested Randy near Tioga, where he lives.

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office said Randy was being jailed without bond Wednesday pending an appearance before a judge in Sherman, about 60 miles north of Dallas.

TMZ reported Randy was found naked and lying in the roadway, and his 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had crashed off the side of the road into several barricades in a construction zone.

In addition to the DWI, Sgt. Wheeler said Randy also faces a charge of retaliation or obstruction. TMZ also reported that Randy had threatened the trooper. NewsChannel5.com reports thus far, a Travis representative has not yet responded to a message Wednesday from The Associated Press.

This is the second arrest this year for Randy, who was charged with public intoxication in February.
