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

Tilley says 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.

This is the singer's third run-in with the law this year. He was arrested on Aug. 7 in Grayson County on charges of driving while intoxicated and retaliation or obstruction, for allegedly threatening officers. He was also arrested in February for public intoxication after being spotted in a vehicle parked in front of a church near his home.

The police report does not indicate alcohol was involved in the latest incident.
