SHERMAN (January 11, 2013)—Blood-alcohol test results confirm that country star Randy Travis was legally drunk when he was arrested naked after a traffic accident in North Texas.

Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said Travis was formally charged Wednesday with driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol level greater than 0.15.

The legal limit for driving in Texas is 0.08.

The Class-A misdemeanor is punishable by as much as two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Travis was arrested on a DWI charge and freed on bond after the Aug. 7 single-vehicle accident near Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas.

Brown said negotiations continue to resolve the case.

Travis still faces a retaliation charge stemming from alleged threats to officers.
