Randy Travis has apologized after being arrested on a charge of public intoxication outside a North Texas church, but said he was still partying after the New York Giants won the Super Bowl, but sources directly connected with the country singer said he was drinking a bottle of wine because he had an argument with his girlfriend.
Denton County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Reedy says police in the town of Sanger arrested Randy Travis early Monday after spotting a vehicle parked in front of a church and finding an open bottle of wine and Travis smelling of alcohol.
Reedy says the singer, whose hits include “Forever and Ever, Amen,” was brought to the Denton County jail about 1:30 a.m. and released six hours later.
Travis, who lives in the small town of Tioga near Sanger, apologized in a statement to The Associated Press “for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl.”
Travis, who launches a concert tour Friday, says he’s “committed to being responsible and accountable.”
