    Randy Travis in Trouble with the Law

    I am by no means a country music fan but I have fond memories of Travis during my college years. He seemed so wholesome back then....look at him now.

    The country star is behind bars for the second time in 2012, after an arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated--and naked--Tuesday night in Texas

    Well, as wholesome as a kid could be with a lengthy criminal record who gets involved with a married older woman which contributes to the break up of her marriage.

    Lost track of him in the 80's. Had no idea.

    I didn't realize that he and his wife/manager had gotten divorced. That picture is sad

    (But I must admit that the story made me think of when Matthew McConaghey got busted for naked bongo playing. Also in Texas...)

    Big difference - he was in his own home, not driving a car and endangering others, nor threatening police.

    Did tequila make his clothes fall off?

    Kidding aside... What a mess. I only know of him from the song Carrie Underwood did with him.
    How in the world do you get that drunk?
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    Depending what part of Texas you're in... quite easily.. If there's not alot to do and nothing around for miles... Then what do you do? Drink...

    That's what happened when I was in Oklahoma for six days... A DUI down there is almost like a right of passage...

    So sad. He was my mom's favorite male country singer. The last I had read about him years ago was that he & his wife were enjoying their life together living in an amazing oceanfront house in Hawaii. Now he's divorced, gets busted for DUI naked in a '98 Trans Am. (Did the guy go broke or something? That's a pretty old car for a wealthy celebrity to be driving).

    A bit more news. A fan bailed im out and another drove him home. Also before the crash he apparently walked into a convenience store naked to buy some cigarettes but couldn't pay for them.

    The dude has problems.

    I guess because he didn't have any place to put his wallet?

    This whole situation sounds like one giant research project for a country album. His next country album.

    I thought he threatened the police when they showed up and told him and his bongo-playing friends to quiet down.

    I've never heard that - doesn't mean it didn't happen of course, but in the end the drug charges were dropped and he only paid small fine for disturbing the peace.

    I've never heard of any violent or threatening tendencies - quite the opposite in fact as he's known as one of the most laid back people in Hollywood.

    Trans Ams are pretty popular with car collectors, restorers and enthusiasts. You see them in car shows and at collector car/muscle car auctions. Not really a sign of poverty.

    (My husband drags me to that stuff).

    Eh, only if he switches to Outlaw Country. I suspect his wholesome image is in the toilet now.

    Boy's looking rough in that photo. I never thought that Dwight Yoakam would be hotter by comparison.

    Well, beauty was never Randy's middle name...
