As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the 52-year-old country singer was busted for public intoxication in the early hours of Monday morning after he was allegedly found inside his car with an open bottle of wine outside of the First Baptist Church in Sanger, Texas.

At first Travis had attempted to blame his girlfriend for his drunken state, claiming that they had gotten into a fight. However, the officer noted in his report, "Mr. Travis' speech was slurred, and I was beginning to have a hard time understanding what he was saying."

The No Holdin' Back singer is currently touring to celebrate his 25th anniversary in the music industry. He split from his wife, Elizabeth, after 19 years in October 2010, but she remains his manager.
