Plano, TX – Randy Travis was hospitalized after an alleged drunken fight in a Texas church parking lot. Police officers labeled Randy Travis the “primary aggressor” in the fight, which allegedly began as an argument between a husband and wife, Newser reports. Plano, Texas police officers also note it was not clear what the verbal altercation between the couple was about or why Randy Travis got involved in the dispute, which occurred around 1 am on Friday morning.

The most recent Randy Travis arrest is his third this year linked to alcohol. Travis’ arrest last month also occurred during early morning hours near a church and involved nudity, as previously reported on Inquisitr. Travis has only been out of jail for only a few weeks, the felony retaliation and obstruction charges stemming from the arrest are still pending, Fox News notes. In February Randy Travis was arrested for public intoxication in a different Texas church parking lot.

TMZ reports Randy Travis, 53, was cited for simple assault and was transported to a local hospital for medical care. Plano police officers responded to the church after a tip about the fight was reported. A TMZ source claims Randy Travis was “extremely intoxicated” and the fight between the country music singer and the husband occurred over a “girl” which sources indicate was the wife.

A third man was also allegedly involved in the Randy Travis fight at the Plano, Texas church parking lot, according to the Daily Mail. Randy Travis recently split Elizabeth Travis, his wife of 19 years and personal manager. Travis has won 24 country music awards, including 6 Grammys.

    Randy is just living his next hit song. You have to livel it before you can sing it, Good luck Randy," don't go to church if you are drinking".

    Therevhad to be a reason, also a reason for his drinking, he will ultrimately conquor his own demons.

  3. Sarah Elizabeth Pat Judkins

    I have known Randy ever since he started his career. He has had some hard times and good times. We all love him when he is in his good times, bad times people just have to kick him one more time. Walk a mile in his shoes.

  4. Jim Harrison

    A fine and talented man, this is just another real shame when the leeches leave after success ebbs for a while the sharks start circling. He needs support and common sense, not piranhas. Its his domestic crisis and he needs peace. How would we be in his shoes?

  5. Karen Elizabeth Gilbreath

    The man has a drinking problem. Whether or not he is an alcoholic, Randy is the only 1 that can make that assumption, but by all the antics he's pulled in the last 6 months, certainly are pointing to alcoholism!

    He was scheduled to perform at the RNC, but I am pretty certain that was not going to happen after he was driving naked and ran his car off the road a few weeks ago. Now this. Someone needs to get this guy to rehab and he needs to be there for a long time.

    It's as if he is living out the story of his character in "The Wager"…maybe he needs to watch his own movie. Praying he gets help.

  8. Consuelo Lightner

    He need his friend performers to call for an intervention and help him out with his alcoholism before he kills someone or himself; that is what friends are for.

    Randy is in a MAJOR midlife crisis. You would think after being found sprawled out in the road nude that he would get a clue. He is definitely in need of some kind of intervention. Next time he might be found in the road dead.

    I DOn't BELIEVE IT SAID HE WAS FIGHTING DRINK AT CHURCH. AT 1AM I DOn't THINK THEY HAVE CHURCH AT THAT HOUR.THEY ADDED HIS PAST HISTORY.YA KNOW WHAT, NEWSPAPERS LIE TO GET A JUICY STORY. HOW DO YOU KNOW HE WASNT HELPING THAT WIFE FROM GETTING BEATEN UP.YOU JUST DON;T NO. I'D SAY, WORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR YARD, STAY OUT OF HIS AFFAIRS.ITS KNOW ONES BUSINESS BUT HIS.TO SWAY A OPINION JUST OVER WHAT GOSSIP PAPERS WRITE, COULD DO HIM ALOT OF DAMAGE IN HIS REAL LIFE.THAT's NOT COOL.

    WHO KNOWS.BUT NEWSPAPERS LIE, THEY GET REPORTS FROM CORRUPT DEPUTYS THAT WRITE THEM TO GET A EASIER CONVICTION. NEWSPAPERS GET THE CRAP THEY WRITE.THE VICTOM GETS A BAD REP, LOOSES IN COURT OVER IT.COMMENTS MATTER IN CASES. FOR THE MOST PART IS THEY HAVE THEIR CLICK OF PEOPLE THAT ARE NEGATIVE OVER THE VICTOM, TO DESTROY THEIR REP. NEVER BELIEVE WHAT YA READ.EVEN MURDER CASES, THEY TRY TO CONVICT A INNOCENT PERSON, VIEWERS THINK, THEY GOT THE KILLER. THE SYDROME IS 'THANK GOD THEY GOT HIM' WHICH IS MOST LIKELY INNOCENT, AND THERE SAYING HE ADMITTED IT, WHEN HE NEVER DID.CORRUPT COURT SYSTEM.VERY CORRUPT.

    When a relationship goes sour, it effects people differently, there are two sides to every story, the media always hypes up one side of the story, that's what sells, maby counciling an anger management.Ending a 19 year marriage will make the best person go to drinking an doing crazy things outside the norm.their is a reason this is happening, instead, WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST TAKE A MINUTE OR SO TO SAY A PRAYER FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING AN ASK GOD TO WATCH OVER HIM, for he who is without sin cast the first stone of judgement.I'll start the prayer:Lord watch over this man and comfort him with what ever problem is troubling his soul; now help me to finish this prayer———-please!

  13. Colleen Sullivan

    The poor man is definitely in need of prayers and support.
