Randy Travis found naked after car accident, arrested for DUI

Posted on in DUI

Law enforcement says that troopers responded to the scene of a reported car accident shortly after 11:15 Tuesday night. Troopers claim that they found Travis naked when troopers arrived at the car accident scene. Authorities say the country music star was combative during the the investigation and after his DUI arrest.

The musician apparently suffered some personal injuries in the accident. An Associated Press report carried by the San Jose Mercury News says that Travis had a black eye and visible dried blood on his face in the mug shot released by the Sheriff's Office.

Travis was arrested on suspicion of DUI after the encounter with police. However, troopers say that the musician remained combative and authorities are planning to pursue felony charges under Texas law for retaliation or obstruction charges. Law enforcement claims that Travis made threats to shoot and kill the troopers involved in the investigation while he was being transported to the county jail. Law enforcement reportedly obtained a blood sample from Travis, test results remain pending.

The singer reportedly posted $21,000 bond and was released from jail Wednesday.
