The 52-year-old singer has since apologized for the incident, blaming a rowdy Super Bowl bash.

"I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl," he said in a statement. "I'm committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions."

Travis and Elizabeth, his wife of 19 years, divorced in 2010.
