Short story:

Full article:

When deeply troubled country star Randy Travis, known to have alcohol and drug problems, tried to buy a pack of cigarettes from a convenience store near Tioga,Texas, clerk Scott Robinson was stunned to see that the 'Better Class Of Losers' hitmaker was stark naked.

Understandably, the clerk asked how Mr. Travis intended to pay for the cigarettes, at which point the star staggered out of the store. The clerk placed a 911 call but while police were on their way, another call reported that a man had been seen lying naked in nearby Clover Road. By the time police arrived, they found Travis spreadeagled beside his crashed Pontiac Trans Am, reeking of alcohol and, when they attempted to arrest him he threatened to shoot and kill them.

Dashcam footage of a still naked Travis being driven to the police station subsequently revealed him threatening the officer, claiming to know heads of Mafia families and boasting about the size of his penis.

His representatives later described Travis’ behaviour on that night as "extremely altered" because of the state of his mental health and the substances in his body. Unimpressed, a local court sentenced him to 180 days in jail and a $2000 fine, but he could avoid jail time by checking in to an inpatient alcohol facility for a minimum of 30 days and serving 100 hours of community service.
