    UNDATED (CNN) -- Country music star Randy Travis is under arrest in Texas.

    According to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office, officers arrested Travis last night. And they charged him with driving while intoxicated and felony retaliation.  

    In a press release, the sheriff's office says it got a 911 call about a man lying in the road.

    And that led officers to Travis, who they say was involved in a one-vehicle accident. Officers say Travis smelled like alcohol and showed several signs of intoxication.  

    He initially refused to take blood and breathalyzer tests, but authorities got a warrant.

    The press release says the retaliation charge is for Travis threatening to shoot and kill the troopers working the case.

    Officers say Travis is expected to be released when he makes bail.
