GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) — Country singer Chris Cagle has been arrested in Texas on a driving while intoxicated charge.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Cagle was arrested early Sunday near Greenville, 50 miles northeast of Dallas. The agency says the 45-year-old entertainer was pulled over after running a red light.

The Hunt County Sheriff's Office says Cagle was released later Sunday on $3,000 bond. Sgt. Jeff Haines on Tuesday had no information on an attorney for Cagle.

The penalty for Class B misdemeanor DWI includes a fine of up to $2,000, up to six months in jail or both.

A message to a booking and management agency representing Cagle wasn't immediately returned Tuesday.

Cagle's 2002 single "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out" reached No. 1 on Billboard's country music chart.
