PLANO, TX (KLTV) -

Country singer Randy Travis has had yet another brush with the law in North Texas.

Plano Police say Travis was involved in a scuffle in the Preston Wood Baptist Church parking lot, off Preston Road in Plano late Thursday night.

Plano Police Officer David Tilley says an estranged married couple was involved in a verbal argument in the church parking lot, when Travis stepped in.

Tilley says Travis, who apparently knew the woman, reportedly got physical with the husband.

The responding officer reports that alcohol use was suspected, but Tilley says there is no evidence that any of the parties involved were intoxicated.

The arrest report stated that Travis' clothing was torn and his eyes were bloodshot.

Travis was cited for simple assault, a Class C misdemeanor, that officials equate with a traffic ticket. Travis was not arrested in relation to the altercation.

Another woman, Cavanaugh Beoughner, was also cited for simple assault.

No one was injured in the incident.

Although various media outlets are reporting Travis was hospitalized after the incident, Plano Police say Travis was not transported in an official capacity by their department or the Collin County Sheriff's Office.

This is the country crooner's third run-in with authorities in North Texas this year. In February, he was arrested for public intoxication in Denton.

In August, Travis was charged with driving while intoxicated and retaliation for allegedly threatening to shoot and kill troopers in Tioga, TX.
