Randy Travis's Brother Charged with Running Meth Lab in North Carolina Home

Webster PRRandy Travis isn't the only member of his family facing rough times these days. While the country star recovers from brain surgery following a stroke in a Dallas-area hospital, Travis's brother, David Traywick, has been arrested for allegedly running a meth lab in his North Carolina home.

According to KRJH-TV, the 50-year-old Traywick was taken into custody Tuesday night in Marshville, NC along with his wife, Jessica, and two other women. They were charged with conspiracy to traffic meth.  Traywick was also arrested for cooking meth in his home in September 2012.

Randy Travis is getting closer to breathing on his own after undergoing brain surgery last week. Doctors expect it will take several months for him to recover from the stroke he suffered while hospitalized for a heart condition, idiopathic cardiomyopathy, a weakening of the heart muscle due to scar tissue.
