The Grammy Award winner, 52, expressed his regret via a statement released to the Associated Press. “I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl. I’m committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions.”

According to People, Travis told police who responded to the scene that he and his girlfriend were in the midst of a fight.

Travis was released from the Denton County jail, not far from the town of Tioga, Tex., where he reportedly resides, early Monday morning. He was cited with a misdemeanor charge in connection with the incident.

Travis released the CD “25th Anniversary Celebration” — a compilation celebrating his quarter-century in the music business — last year. He is scheduled to begin a U.S. tour Friday, with a date at the Spirit Mountain Casino in Grand Ronde, Ore.
