Randy Travis was arrested early this morning in Sanger, Texas after police found him in his truck, apparently intoxicated, in front of a Baptist church. "An officer detected an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the person, and he noticed an open bottle of wine in the passenger side of the vehicle," Sanger Police Chief Curtis Amyx told Reuters. "His speech was slurred and the officer had a hard time understanding what he was trying to stay."
