It seems Randy Travis got a helping hand from a neighbor in the Sherman, Texas area while in police custody earlier this week. According to TMZ, local lawyer Gary Corley rushed over to the jail once he heard about Travis’s arrest to offer the singer his legal services.

Travis left the jail wearing a paper suit, a Texas Longhorns hat and no shoes Wednesday. Corley says he offered that hat to Travis from his own head to shield the singer’s bruised face from photographers. Corley also claims to have offered Travis a ride, but Travis rode away from the jail in a car driven by the man who posted his $21,500 bond.

Travis is charged with DUI and a felony offense of retaliation and obstruction for threatening to shoot and kill his arrest officers Tuesday night. He was discovered lying naked on the road outside the town of Tioga, TX. His 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had veered off the road and hit barricades in a construction zone.
