Travis pleads not guilty in parking lot scuffle; trial in March

PLANO, Texas — Country star Randy Travis has pleaded not guilty to simple assault and faces trial March 11 in a Dallas-area municipal court.

Travis on Friday appeared in a Plano courtroom with his attorneys and asked for a jury trial.

Plano police cited Travis following an Aug. 23 incident 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 on public intoxication charges.
