SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — A prosecutor says country music star Randy Travis is expected to enter a guilty plea in a drunken-driving case in north Texas.
Mr. Travis was naked when he was arrested following a single-vehicle accident Aug. 7 near Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas. Authorities have said his blood-alcohol level was more than 0.15. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.
Mr. Brown says Mr. Travis will plead guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving, which is punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. The 53-year-old Mr. Travis still faces a retaliation charge for allegedly threatening officers.
Mr. Travis‘ attorney wasn’t immediately available for comment.
