Randy Travis Sues to Prevent Release of DWI Arrest Video

Randy Travis has taken legal action to prevent the release of a patrol car video of his 2012 drunken-driving arrest near his home in Tioga, Texas. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday (May 14) in Austin against the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas attorney general’s office. Police reports indicated Travis was found naked by the road after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am. He pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to two years’ probation. A judge granted a request from Travis’ attorneys to block the video from being released. After media groups requested the video from law enforcement authorities, the attorney general’s office ruled this month that the judge did not have the authority to bar the video’s release.
