(CBS/AP) Randy Travis has been charged with driving while intoxicated in North Texas.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says Travis was being jailed without bond Wednesday pending an appearance before a judge in Sherman, about 60 miles north of Dallas.

Sgt. Rickey Wheeler says Travis also faces a charge of retaliation or obstruction. Wheeler had no details on that count, but TMZ reports that Travis verbally threatened a cop during the arrest, according to law enforcement sources.

Wheeler says a Texas trooper arrested Travis, 53, around midnight Tuesday near Tioga, where the entertainer lives. Sources told TMZ that Travis was arrested on DWI after crashing his car, leaving him with minor cuts and bruises. Witnesses also told the site that Travis wasn't wearing any clothes when police arrived.

A Travis representative did not immediately reply to a message Wednesday from The Associated Press.

This is the country singer's second legal altercation this year. In February, he was charged with public intoxication after being spotted in a vehicle parked in front of a church in Sanger, about 20 miles from Tioga.
