University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

This one will stick with Randy Travis forever… and ever, Amen.

Tuesday night wasn’t one of Randy Travis’ best performances.

The country music star was arrested for DWI after he drove his 1998 Pontiac Trans Am (exactly what you’d expect Randy Travis to drive) off the road and into several barricades in a construction zone. He luckily avoided severe injuries, but “A Man Ain’t Made of Stone.” The wreck caused a few cuts and bruises, as you can see in his mugshot.

But the trouble didn’t stop there.

Once he was secured in the back of the squad car, Travis threatened to shoot and kill the troopers on the scene. Yes, drunk Randy Travis threatened to murder a group of law enforcement officers. That’s never a good idea.

We’re not done.

Travis was completely naked and lying in the road when the original 911 call was made. Officers gave him a paper suit to cover his “Honky Tonk Moon” once they arrived on the scene.

Let this be a lesson, kids. Don’t grow up to be like Randy Travis.

Be more like Conway Twitty.

    Cut him some slack. He was just out looking for those mysterious “Three Wooden Crosses”….no biggie

    So can we assume that he’s struggling post-divorce?

    Woman problems per Travis. He needs to quit resurrecting memories of a love that’s dead and gone.

    Maybe he and Clyde should get together and talk about their problems over some midnight golf?

    Before he got arrested, he also walked into a convenient store naked & tried to buy cigarettes.

    When the cable isn’t working, you get sad.

    When you get sad, you get drunk and take off your clothes.

    When you get drunk and take off your clothes, you go driving around and crash into barricades.

    When you go driving around and crash into barricades the cops come.

    When the cops come and arrest you for DWI and nudity, you threaten them.

    When you threaten them, you got to jail for a long long time.

    Don’t be Randy Travis and go to jail for a long long time. Switch to direct TV

    You may think that I’m talking foolish
    I’m naked and drunk and it’s 3…
    You may wonder how, a guy like me can’t pay now
    But until I find my pants, could I bum a square for free?

    You see, you’re not just time that I’m killin
    I really don’t have time to stall
    I’ve got $hit to do, and I know you do, too
    So where does that leave us on that pack of menthols, Oh Baby…

    I’m on a post-divorce bender. A bender to end benders, my friend.
    As long as my ex continues to take half of my money
    As long as her attorney continues to bang her brains in
    If you wonder how bad off my life is
    Well, just look what I’m rolling around in…
    I’m on a bender. The bender of benders. A post-divorce bender, my friend.

    I hope the next time his ex-wife sees him she simply laughs at him and says “I told you so”

    I love R.T’s sound and songs, but, obviously, he has some serious issues going on and needs some help.

    Without a doubt, my favorite part of the story is that he was driving a 1998 Trans Am. That’s so awesome.

    Suppose I get too drunk tonight and call you early in the morning
    And suppose I said “I wanna get some dome”
    And suppose I cried and said “I think I’ll load my 5th & Wesson”
    And I’m tired of you spending all my money alone

    If I told you that I realized I’m naked and I’m horny
    And it’s gonna kill me when I hit that tree that’s in my way
    Would you come to my rescue and say we could be together
    Or would you just poke fun at me and make me say…..

    You’re a ho, oh you’re a ho
    Now I’m broke and I’m homeless and on my way to jail
    You’re a ho, oh you’re a ho
    Now you’ve found somebody new and won’t even post my bail
