Randy Travis' Truck Found Wrecked, Abandoned in Texas Field
Police said Saturday night that they are investigating the circumstances leading to how the Chevrolet ended up on its side in a field in Frisco behind a Walmart Neighborhood Market. The truck was found with a shattered window, dented roof and broken taillight.
Police said they hadn't been able to contact the singer, but Travis' attorney, Larry Friedman, told the Dallas Morning News that the truck was a ranch vehicle that Travis didn't use very often.
“He hasn’t been in that truck or seen that truck in about three months,” he said. “This has nothing to do with Randy whatsoever.”
The truck was found less than three weeks after Travis, 53, was arrested in Texas for drunk driving after crashing his car.
Troopers reportedly discovered the country singer on the night of Aug. 7 with cuts, bruises and alcohol on his breath after responding to a 911 call reporting a man lying in a roadway near the town of Tioga. Travis' blood was drawn under a search warrant because he declined blood and breath tests to screen for alcohol. In a mugshot, he sports a black eye and hostile expression, and he was reportedly naked at the time of his arrest.
Two days before the truck was discovered, Travis was reportedly issued a misdemeanor assault citation after a confrontation between his girlfriend and her estranged husband in a chuch parking lot.
He also received a citation for public intoxication in February.
