PLANO, Texas (AP) - Police in suburban Dallas said they are citing country star Randy Travis for simple assault after he got involved in a couple's argument.

Plano police Officer David Tilley said Friday that a woman and her estranged husband were arguing Thursday night in a church parking lot. He said Travis apparently knows the woman and got involved.

Tilley said nobody was hurt, but Travis and another woman were ticketed for simple assault, a Class C misdemeanor similar to a parking citation.

A Travis representative didn't immediately comment.

Travis was arrested August 7 in Grayson County on charges of driving while intoxicated and retaliation or obstruction, for allegedly threatening officers. He was arrested in February in Sanger for public intoxication.

The police report does not indicate alcohol was involved in the latest incident, but TMZ reported Travis was "extremely intoxicated" and had to be taken to the hospital.
