Randy Travis out of jail in time for Pikes Peak Center show



Everybody's got their own way of commemorating the Super Bowl. If you're me, for instance, you blast New York City's house band, Black 47, loud enough to piss off any Patriots fans within a three-block radius.

Or, if you're Randy Travis, you may prefer to hang out in front of a church drinking wine until the police come and take you away.

The Texas country singer — whose tour starts this Friday and will bring him to the Pikes Peak Center on Feb. 17 — was reportedly arrested for public intoxication early Monday morning. (That indeed is his mug shot above.) According to a Denton Country sheriff's spokesperson, Travis had an open bottle of wine in his vehicle, got hauled off to jail at 1:30 a.m., and was released six hours later.

In a subsequent statement to the Associated Press, Travis apologized "for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl."

In retrospect, we probably should have seen this one coming. As Travis sang in "Better Class of Losers,"

"You think it's disgraceful that they drink three-dollar wine / But a better class of losers suits me fine."
