Prosecutors have decided to go after Randy Travis guns blazing charging him with multiple offenses after his arrest for drunk driving on August 7, 2012 near his hometown of Tioga, which is about 60 miles north of Dallas.
It didn’t help that Travis was discovered laying near his vehicle completely nude.
The 53-year-old has been charged for driving while intoxicated near his hometown of Tioga, Texas. It has been reported that the Texas state trooper who discovered Travis after he crashed his car found him lying on the side of the road entirely in the nude. The DUI charge could get Travis two years in prison and a $4,000 fine if he ends up being convicted.
Of course, that’s not the only trouble Travis has to deal with. He also had a “retaliation and obstruction” charge leveled against him, which is a third-degree felony if he is convicted. The decision to convict Travis has not been made yet. Travis reportedly verbally threatened a cop who was arrested him.
Travis had a blood alcohol level of more than 0.15 percent, or nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 when he threatened to shoot and kill state troopers while being transported to jail, prosecutors said.
