A truck registered to country singer Randy Travis was found Saturday morning tipped over and abandoned in a field in Frisco.
Police said Saturday evening that they are investigating how the truck ended up near the corner of Lebanon Road and Legacy Drive but haven’t been able to contact Travis, who has been involved in several police reports this year.
Travis’ lawyer, Larry Friedman, said he also doesn’t know who left the wrecked Chevrolet truck behind a Walmart Neighborhood Market, but it wasn’t his client.
The vehicle is a ranch truck that Travis rarely used, Friedman said.
“He hasn’t been in that truck or seen that truck in about three months,” he said. “This has nothing to do with Randy whatsoever.”
Friedman said that a ranch hand had been using the truck and that Travis will follow up to try to find out how it ended up with its windshield shattered, its roof dented and with a taillight hanging off.
No criminal charges have been filed in connection with the truck.
It was found less than two days after Travis received a misdemeanor assault citation after an incident in a Plano church parking lot.
Police said Travis is suspected of a simple assault after he stepped into a confrontation between his girlfriend and her estranged husband outside Prestonwood Baptist Church.
Travis’ citation was for a Class C misdemeanor, which police compared to a traffic ticket.
Travis was also arrested in Grayson County on Aug. 7 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Authorities said they found him naked and smelling strongly of alcohol in a wrecked car.
He also received a public intoxication citation in Denton in February.
