Paging Betty Ford

Randy Travis might use a stay in Betty Ford's institute. 
Country music star Randy Travis, who pleaded no contest to public intoxication following the Super Bowl in February, was arrested again Tuesday after being found naked, smelling apparently of alcohol and lying on a remote stretch of roadway in northern Texas just before midnight, authorities said. He was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and felony retaliation, after allegedly threatening to fatally shoot highway patrol troopers who responded to a concerned caller who notified authorities of "a man lying in the roadway" Tuesday. The DWI offense is a misdemeanor, authorities said.
Heh! Yeah, threatening to shoot the cops who find you laying naked in the roadway isn't the best idea in the world, but if you're laying naked in a roadway your judgement is just a bit relaxed. I'd say it's time to get off the bottle. Tam's commenter Robert wins the prize for the opening line of a new country song:
""I woke up naked on a county road were a po-lice-man knew my name... I said I'd shoot his ass if he didn't go away...""
I bet that Randy could make it a #1 song.

Hat tip to Tam.

Pathetic, and if he doesn't clean up his act, we'll be reading his obit by Christmas...
