PLANO, Texas -

Plano police said troubled country singer Randy Travis got into a fight in the parking lot of one of North Texas' largest churches.

David Tilley, a spokesman with the Plano Police Department, confirmed Travis showed up at Prestonwood Baptist Church at 6801 W. Park Blvd. late Thursday night.

The woman got into an argument with her estranged husband over a child custody dispute. The argument escalated and Travis got into a physical altercation with the estranged husband.

Both men and another woman in the church parking lot who got involved were given citations for simple assault, but not arrested, Tilley said. The citation carries the same legal weight as a speeding ticket.

This is the third time this year Travis has tangled with the law in North Texas.

The singer was arrested on a DWI charge on August 8 near his home in Tioga, in Grayson County. Travis had crashed his Pontiac Trans Am into some construction barriers on FM 922.

During the arrest he allegedly threatened the DPS troopers who found him, and was also charged with retaliation.

Travis was also arrested in February for public intoxication in a church parking lot in Sanger. He was behind the wheel of his car, but not driving, police said at the time.
