Randy Travis just can't seem to stay out of trouble these days. Just a couple weeks after being arrested and cited for driving drunk, the 53-year-old country singer found himself on the wrong side of the law yet again--this time for fighting in a Texas church parking lot.
According to a breaking report from TMZ, police arrived to the church in response to a call about two men brawling outside. People spoke to Plano police officer David Tilley, who explained that the scuffle was reported around 10 p.m. Thursday night, and that Travis was fighting with his alleged girlfriend's estranged husband.
The spouses were reportedly arguing over a family issue. "Randy intervened and reportedly an assault took place," Tilley noted.
He added that no injuries were reported and that he had no reason to believe Travis was drunk. "It's nothing more than what we run into on a regular basis."
Travis was cited for simple assault, which is considered a minor misdemeanor on the level of a traffic offense. Plano is about an hour's drive from Travis's hometown of Tioga, Texas.
This marks the third time this year that Travis has been in trouble with police. His earlier arrest this month was marked by bizarre behavior--entering a convenience store stark naked to buy cigarettes--as well as crashing his car. In February, he was found drinking in a different church parking lot and cited for public intoxication. He claimed at that time that he was celebrating Super Bowl Sunday. There has been no comment yet from his camp on his latest issue.
