Randy TravisSHERMAN, Tex. (AP) — Randy Travis has pleaded guilty to drunk driving in exchange for probation and a fine. Travis received a 180-day suspended jail sentence, two years of probation and a $2,000 fine.

He also must go to rehab and do community service. Authorities say Travis veered off a road near Sherman, Texas, on August 7 and struck several construction barricades. Police say Travis was naked and combative.

Travis has had a string of run-ins with the law. Police outside Dallas cited Travis after an August 23 incident in which he allegedly intervened in an argument between a female acquaintance and her estranged husband.

He pleaded no contest in that case. He was also arrested last February northwest of Dallas for public intoxication.
