Country music singer Randy Travis is taking on the Texas Department of Public Safety and the attorney general after evidence from his drunken-driving arrest was released to the public.
No love lost between Travis and the state agency, after his drunk driving arrest video went public. It was collected after a nude Travis crashed his car outside Dallas. He received two years probation, a $2,000 fine and was ordered to do community service. His suit says the judge also ruled that the arrest video not only not be released to the public, but be destroyed.
However, the DPS received a written request for information about the arrest and sought a ruling from the attorney general, who ruled that some of it should be released.
Travis is seeking a hundred thousand dollars in damages and a judgment keeping the arrest information private.
