TMZ: Nude Randy Travis Arrested for DWI
Update: TMZ is now reporting that Randy Travis was naked when he was arrested. TMZ also says he refused to take a breathalyzer, so a blood
draw was taken to determine his blood alcohol level.
TMZ.com is reporting Randy Travis threatened to shoot and kill the troopers
who arrested him for drunk driving last night.
The site says the information is from the
Grayson County Sheriff's Office. They say the officers
received a call at 11:18 PM from a person who stated there was a man
lying in the roadway. When cops arrived to the scene, they noticed
Travis' 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had driven off the road and slammed into
several barricades in a construction zone.
Travis was initially
arrested for DWI -- but once he was inside the cop car, officials say
the singer threatened to "shoot and kill the Troopers working the case."
TMZ is also reporting Travis was naked and rode bareback while he was being transported to the station. When he arrived to the jail, cops gave Travis a shirt to wear for his mug shot and a paper suit to cover his man parts.
Travis was charged with DWI and retaliation for making the threats. Travis is currently in custody.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma lawmakers have begun the process of appropriating millions of dollars in emergency funds to help pay the cost of recovering from tornadoes that have ravaged parts of central Oklahoma.
Separate committees of the House and Senate on Tuesday approved a plan to appropriate $45 million from the state's Rainy Day Constitutional Reserve Fund. The money will go to the State Emergency Fund to help recover from a massive tornado that struck Moore on Monday, killing at least 24 people. A separate tornado on Sunday left two dead in Shawnee.
Republican Sen. Clark Jolley of Edmond says the money will help the Department of Emergency Management match disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency or to pay costs not covered by federal dollars.
