Randy Travis Has A Fist Fight in Church Parking Lot – Was He Drunk or Not?

I so wish this was a joke, but looks like it’s for real. Randy Travis is making news again. 

According to TMZ :

More trouble for Randy Travis … TMZ has learned the embattled singer was involved in a FIGHT in a church parking lot in (Plano) Texas early this morning.

Law enforcement sources tell us … cops responded to the church around 1 AM after receiving a tip about two men fighting in the parking lot.

We’re told Travis was taken to the hospital after the fight. One source tells us Randy appeared to be “extremely intoxicated.”

We’re told the fight was over a girl.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting he did not seem intoxicated:

Plano police spokesman David Tilley tells The Dallas Morning News that the reported dust-up involving Randy Travis wasn’t a big deal — “nothing more than what we deal with on a regular basis,’ he says, “a disturbance. It so happens this one involves a high-profile person.”

Here’s how Tilley says the incident actually went down.

At 10:30 p.m. Thursday police responded to a disturbance call at 6801 West Park Boulevard, otherwise known as Prestonwood Baptist Church. Says Tilley, once officers arrived they “determined there had been an argument between an estranged husband and wife.” Tilley says the argument was “strictly verbal, nothing major.” Police soon discovered that the wife is Travis’ girlfriend.

“During our investigation we determined Mr. Travis at some point physically assaulted an individual who was there,” says Tilley — referring, of course, to the husband. “He was issued a citation for Class C simple assault, which in Texas can be anything from an an unwanted push to a strike that didn’t cause pain or injury. Everybody refused transport. Nobody wanted to go to hospital.”

Tilley says there was no indication whatsoever that Travis was drunk.

“Everyone is making the assumption that he was extremely intoxicated, as TMZ put it,” Tilley says. “I’ve got the report, and there’s no indication he was intoxicated at all. Was he? I don’t know, but the report doesn’t say he was.’
