(Newser) – Randy Travis' downward spiral seems to be speeding up: Texas police say an "extremely intoxicated" Travis got into a fight in a church parking lot around 1am and ended up in the hospital, reports TMZ. Cops cited him for simple assault and labeled him the aggressor. It's not clear what the fight was about, but it apparently started as an argument between a husband and wife, and Travis got involved. Fox News notes that it's the country singer's third arrest linked to booze this year, including one earlier this month that involved nudity. (Read more Randy Travis stories.)
