SHERMAN, Texas — Randy Travis pleaded guilty Thursday to driving while intoxicated in a case that began last summer when the naked country music star crashed his Pontiac Trans Am.

Travis received a 180-day suspended jail sentence, 24 months of probation and a $2,000 fine. He was ordered to spend at least 30 days at an alcohol treatment facility, complete 100 hours of community service and have an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he operates while on probation.

Travis, 53, entered the plea in a court in the North Texas city of Sherman. The misdemeanor was punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.

As the singer walked out of the courthouse, he thanked supporters and said he is glad to have the case behind him.

Travis also had faced a charge of retaliation for allegedly threatening officers, but as part of the plea agreement, he will no longer face that charge.
