Christian music star Randy Travis’s troubles continued this week after police in the Dallas suburb of Plano said he was cited for assault after intervening in a friend’s argument with her husband.
Nobody was hurt, but police told The Associated Press that Travis and his unnamed accomplice were still charged with Class C misdemeanors, otherwise known as simple assault. It’s not yet clear exactly what he did.
The longtime country crooner turned Christian music sensation was divorced by his wife and former producer in 2010, and the two have since filed lawsuits against each other.
