PLANO (December 21, 2012)—Country star Randy Travis pleaded not guilty Friday to simple assault and faces trial on March 11 in a Plano municipal court.
Travis appeared Friday in a Plano courtroom with his attorneys and asked for a jury trial.
Plano police cited Travis after an incident on Aug. 23 in a church parking lot in which he allegedly intervened in an argument involving a woman he knows and her estranged husband.
Nobody was hurt.
Travis, when asked Friday by WFAA-TV to comment about his recent legal troubles, said people shouldn't believe everything they might hear or read.
Travis was arrested Aug. 7 in North Texas on charges of driving while intoxicated and retaliation or obstruction, for allegedly threatening officers.
He was arrested last February in Sanger for public intoxication.
