Country singer Randy Travis arrested on multiple charges

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 11:30am

Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Grayson County early Wednesday following a wreck in Tioga.

According to jail records, Travis was booked into the Grayson County Jail just before 4:30 Wednesday morning on charges of DUI as well as Retaliation.

Travis was involved in a one vehicle accident at around 11:15 Tuesday night.

Travis allegedly had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication. Travis refused a blood and breath test; a search warrant was granted by a judge for a blood specimen, which was taken at a local hospital.

The retaliation charge stems from Travis making threats to shoot and kill the troopers during his ride to jail.

Brown says the case will probably end up in front of a grand jury and a hearing could be set in a couple of weeks.

His bond was set at $21,500.
