(CNN) -- Country music star Randy Travis was arrested after being found naked, apparently smelling of alcohol and lying on a remote stretch of roadway in northern Texas just before midnight, authorities said Wednesday.
He was charged with driving while intoxicated and retaliation, after allegedly threatening to fatally shoot highway patrol troopers who responded to a concerned caller who notified authorities of "a man lying in the roadway" Tuesday.
While in custody, Travis allegedly threatened "to shoot and kill the troopers working the case," according to Sgt. Rickey Wheeler.
He apparently refused to take a blood and breath test, and was later forced to submit to a judge's order for a blood specimen taken at a nearby hospital.
Authorities said he had been in a one-vehicle accident and was released on bond Wednesday morning.
It's not clear whether Travis was injured in the accident, though his mug shot revealed a bruised right eye and several abrasions on his face. The retaliation charged is considered a felony offense.
Neither Travis nor his representative could be immediately reached for comment.
In February, Travis was arrested for public intoxication while sitting in his car in front of a church in Sanger, Texas.
