Behaving badly: Randy Travis, who was arrested for driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest late Tuesday night, CNN reports. Responding to reports of “A man laying in the roadway,” police allegedly found the country singer, 53, naked and reeking of alcohol on a remote stretch of highway in northern Texas just before midnight. According to authorities, the singer had driven his car off of the highway and into a construction zone. He was released on bond Wednesday morning. This will be the second time this year that a combination of alcohol, motor vehicles and law enforcement have caused grief for Travis. In February, he was arrested for public intoxication while sitting in his car in front of a church in Sanger, Texas.

Also behaving badly: Joan Rivers, who handcuffed herself to a shopping cart at a Burbank California Costco store on Wednesday morning, reports ABC7. The author and television personality, 79, made the unauthorized in-store appearance as an act of protest against the chain, who have refused to stock copies of her latest book, “I Hate Everyone. . . Starting with Me,” due to what the chain deemed objectionable content on the dust jacket. Rivers attempted to sell copies of the book inside the store until police arrived to escort her off the premises.

Calling it quits: Bob Hoskins, who has announced that he is retiring from acting following his diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease last fall, Associated Press reports. In a statement released by his London representatives, Hoskins thanked his fans for “a wonderful career.” Hoskins, 69, got his start acting in British television shows during the ’70s, but broke through to a wider audience after he starred in the 1988 film, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” Earlier this year, he appeared as one of the seven dwarves in Rupert Sanders’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Born:A son to Kristin Cavallari and fiance Jay Cutler on Wednesday morning, reports People. They’re calling him Camden Jack Cutler. First kid for the reality TV star, 25, and the Chicago Bears quarterback, 29.
