PLANO, Texas—Police in suburban Dallas say they’re citing country star Randy Travis for simple assault after he got involved in a couple’s argument.
Plano police Officer David Tilley said Friday that a woman and her estranged husband were arguing Thursday night in a church parking lot. He says Travis apparently knows the woman and got involved.
Tilley says nobody was hurt, but Travis and another woman were ticketed for simple assault, a Class C misdemeanor similar to a parking citation.
A Travis representative didn’t immediately comment.
Travis was "extremely intoxicated" during the incident, citing The Plano Police Department, however, a police report reviewed by the Associated Press did not indicate alcohol was involved in the incident.
It was the second run-in with the law for Travis this month.
He was arrested Aug. 7 in Grayson County on charges of driving while intoxicated and retaliation or obstruction, for allegedly threatening officers. He was arrested in February in Sanger for public intoxication.
