sanger, tx — Country singer Randy Travis was arrested Monday morning in Sanger on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication, according to NBC DFW.
Travis, who has a ranch in nearby Tioga, was spotted in front of the First Baptist Church in Sanger with an open bottle of wine, police said.
“A report of a suspicious vehicle was called in to Sanger police. Police go to investigate and find him smelling like alcohol and [he] had an open bottle of wine,” said Tom Reedy, with the Denton County Sheriff's Department.
Reedy said Sanger officers took him to Denton where he was booked into the county jail at 1:30 a.m. Monday and released a few hours later.
“They take you to jail for at least four hours, time to sober up,” Reedy explained about the Class C misdemeanor, for which Travis was cited.
