Home / Music News / Randy Travis Cited for Simple Assault in Plano, TX


More trouble for Randy Travis. The singer was slapped with a simple assault citation early Friday morning following an altercation in Plano, TX.

A Plano Police Department spokesperson tells ABC News Radio that, contrary to other reports, Travis was not arrested.  There also is no documentation in the official police report that Travis was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Despite further reports that Travis was hospitalized following the altercation, the Plano Police Department has no record of the singer being transported to the hospital by the town’s fire department. His next step is to contact the Municipal Court to address the simple assault citation.

E-mails to Travis’s reps by ABC News Radio have not been returned.

Travis was arrested earlier this month for DUI and making felony threats against officers in Grayson County, TX.  The singer allegedly threatened to shoot and kill troopers who brought him into the station after he was found lying on the road near Tioga, TX. His 1998 Pontiac Trans Am had veered off the road and hit barricades in a construction zone.

Travis was arrested on another DUI charge in February in Sanger, TX when police found him drunk in his car with an open bottle of wine.
