Randy Travis Sues over Drunken Arrest Videos

Upset about its release

|

Country music star Randy Travis has sued the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas attorney general's office after some evidence from his drunken driving arrest last summer was ordered released to the public.

Travis pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated in the August incident in which authorities say they found him naked after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am near Tioga, a town where he lives about 60 miles north of Dallas.

He received two years probation, a $2,000 fine and a 180-day suspended jail sentence, and the judge presiding over the case ordered Travis to spend at least 30 days at an alcohol treatment facility, complete 100 hours of community service and have an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he operates while on probation.
