Randy Travis Sues To Block DWI Patrol Car Video Release

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Country star Randy Travis has sued two agencies to block the public release of patrol car video of his 2012 DWI arrest in North Texas.

The Austin American-Statesman on Thursday reported the lawsuit filed in Austin names the Texas Department of Public Safety and the state attorney general's office.

 

A judge originally granted a defense request to block the video from being released. But media groups requested the video from DPS, and the attorney general's office ruled this month that the judge didn't have discretion to bar the video's release.

Prosecutors have said the singer was found naked by a road after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am. He pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to two years' probation.

DPS and the attorney general's office didn't immediately comment Friday.
