Country Crooner, Randy Travis Charged with a DUI


It seems like celebrities just can’t escape the news these days. But, what’s more shocking is that celebrities are not being praised for their stardom, but for their criminal records and bouts with the law. Earlier this summer country singer Randy Travis was arrested in North Texas while allegedly driving nude under the influence of drugs and alcohol. And if that wasn’t enough, the country star was involved in a single car collision and allegedly threatened to shoot and kill the officers that arrested him. Let’s look at some of his questionable actions the night of his arrest:

  • He was driving nude
  • He was involved in a single collision accident
  • He was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and other drugs
  • He refused to take a breathalyzer test
  • He threatened to shoot and kill his arresting officers

His actions led to charges of retaliation and 3rd degree felony that can result in up to 10 years in prison and a $ 10,000 fine.

What would happen if the country crooner started all this mayhem in Washington State? He probably will be charged with:

  • DUI
  • Reckless driving
  • Indecent exposure

One of the most important aspects of this story was his refusal to take a breathalyzer test. Washington State has a law entitled Washington’s Implied Consent Law, which basically means, at the time you obtained your license you automatically agree to take a breath test if you ever get arrested for a DUI, and if you refuse, you will lose your license. Refusing to take a breath test at the time of arrest can result into in a revocation of your license up to 7 years.

If you or a family member is facing a serious DUI charge, it’s very important that you speak with a skilled DUI attorney. A DUI lawyer will be able to help you understand the law and help you explore all of your legal options.
