Randy Travis BUCK NAKED During DWI Arrest (and threatened to shoot cop)
tmz ^ | 8/7 | tmz

Posted on 08/08/2012 11:02:46 AM PDT by RummyChick

7:54 AM PT -- Sources tell TMZ ... Travis was BUCK NAKED when cops arrived to the crash scene. It's unclear why Travis was not wearing clothes.

We're also told the country singer refused to take a breathalyzer, so a blood draw was taken to determine his blood alcohol level.

6:24 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... Travis was charged with "retaliation" because he verbally threatened a cop during the bust.

0314_divider_graphic Country singer Randy Travis was arrested last night in Texas on suspicion of DWI after crashing his car, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Randy was arrested around 11:59PM with minor cuts and bruises. He was also booked on a "retaliation and obstruction" charge ... a felony.

Randy's car was the only vehicle involved in the crash.

Other details surrounding Randy's arrest are unclear. Randy is still in custody.

It's the singer's 2nd arrest this year -- back in February, Randy was busted for public intoxication for allegedly boozing in front of a Baptist church. According to the police report, Randy said he had just gotten into a fight with his girlfriend.

Randy Travis threatened to shoot and kill the troopers who arrested him for drunk driving last night ... this according to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

The GCSO tells us ... 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."

As we previously reported, 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 is sporting a black eye and cuts in his mug shot -- injuries we're told he suffered when he crashed his car into the construction zone.

Travis was charged with DWI and retaliation for making the threats. Travis is currently in custody.

update_bar 8:45 AM PT -- Randy has been released from custody after posting $21,500 bail.

Butt naked? Maybe.

Is it butt naked or buck naked?

Answer:

“It is both. The word “buck” or “buff” is thought to be
from the color of a buckskin, which is the pale tan color
of European skin - this gives you “buck naked” and “in
the buff.” “Butt naked” refers to the fact that your
buttocks are not covered.”

I have always heard it “buck naked”. I don’t think it
refers to any color at all; the phrase was originally
meant to compare one to an “Indian buck” as the men were
called many years ago in a less politically correct age.
They were commonly thought to be “naked savages”, whether
they were in fact or not. Thus, “buck naked” implied
being without clothing.

How could he threaten to shoot anyone if he was Naked, wouldn’t that mean he didn’t have a gun?

Unless he was talking about his “other gun”....

I’ve heard that the vast majority of Congressmen and attorneys will not submit to a breathalyzer and go for the blood draw. Breathalyzers are not very accurate. They are a “one size fits all” test.

They measure the alcohol in your breath and use it to calculate the alcohol in your blood. Depending on the person it can be significantly off in either direction.

‘Course, if you are having a hard time standing up, it probably doesn’t matter.

Man, is this guy ever falling apart! Sad to see, because I liked his music and he seemed like a really nice fellow. I hope that he gets the spiritual guidance he needs and finds an effective 12 Step buddy to help him through this problem before he hurts himself or someone else.

Well....it depends.

"Buck Naked" means he wasn't wearing any clothes.

"Buck Nekkid" means that he wasn't wearing any clothes and was up to something.

I'll leave it to the rest of the thread to decide specfics. :-)

Uh-oh. I see another political/racist issue on the horizon. Maybe not. I guess this means a black person can't be "buck naked." Imagine he can still be "butt naked" however.

Would this qualify as discrimination, possibly sending the whole issue to SCOTUS? Probably...

—...he crashed his car into the construction zone. —

I remember in the early 80’s, when my buddies an me (all commercial real estate agents) thought nothing of going to the local Mexican restaurant and shooting back six or more Tequila shooters - and then driving home.

I was in my Saab 99 and just as I approached the Mt Baker tunnel on I-90 eastbound I noticed the barriers blocking one lane. I hit one with my side mirror and caused a little dent. Other than that everything was fine.

What a different world it was back then. Drinking that much and slipping behind the wheel of a car is beyond my comprehension.

And I have strict rules about drinking anyway. I only drink if I am with somebody or alone!

This is a real shame. I knew he had troubles in his youth with substance abuse but then straightened himself out by turning to religion. Of course lots of stress (along with a mid-life crisis?) can make bad habits from the past seem suddenly appealing again.

I didn’t hear about the earlier arrest (don’t really follow country music much anymore) so this was a complete surprise. Hopefully he’ll turn himself around again.
