Randy Travis DWI Alcohol Content Released

randy travisCountry Singer Randy Travis was formally charged with DWI on January 9, 2012 and his blood alcohol content (BAC) was released as well. Joe Brown, a Grayson County District Attorney, said that Travis had a blood alcohol content level greater than .15%, almost double the state’s legal limit of .08%. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor and could result in up to 2 years in jail in addition to a $4,000 fine. Travis could also face charges for threatening a police officer which is a felony and carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.

Travis, who has had several run-ins with law enforcement for drinking related offenses, was arrested on August 7, 2012 after a single vehicle accident near Tioga, Texas. Police responded to a call of a man laying unclothed in the road and discovered a Pontiac Trans am crashed into a guardrail that was registered to Randy Travis. Police found Travis naked and asleep near the crash site and arrested him. When police proceeded to take the country singer to his bed at the Grayson County jail, he allegedly became belligerent and began threatening the officers. According to police, Travis told them that he was going to “shoot and kill” them. Travis has since admitted to having an alcohol abuse problem and stated that he would quit drinking all together.
