Texas cops arrested country singer Randy Travis for public drunkenness early yesterday morning. Responding to reports of a suspicious vehicle around 1:30 am, they found the six-time Grammy-winner drunk in his truck outside a baptist church in the small town of Sanger in northern Texas. The officer who arrested Travis described him as cooperative but smelling of booze. His extremely slurred speech also made him difficult to understand. Because Travis' truck wasn't running, he avoided a drunk driving rap and was instead released with a misdemeanor charge a few hours later. Famed for country hits like “Forever and Ever, Amen” and “No Holdin' Back,” the 52-year-old star has sold over 25 million records. He also had a recurring role on TV series Touched by an Angel. “I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl,” he says. “I’m committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions.”

Last February, my oldest friend died of a heroin overdose at the age of 49. He beat me to recovery, and he beat me to death. He also gave a final, drug-alogue interview on my radio show 20 hours before he died.
