Randy Travis Sues Texas Department of Public Safety After Release Of Arrest Tape

Country superstar Randy Travis is suing the Texas Department of Public Safety after a video of his 2012 arrest was made public.

Travis was arrested for DUI in August 2012. The arrest was captured in dash camera.

In a statement, 117 Entertainment Group on behalf of Travis announced:

“Randy’s behavior was extremely altered the evening of his arrest due to the state of his mental health, and substances in his body, causing him to do and say things that were entirely out of character. He suffered a severe concussion and sustained numerous other injuries from the crash.

“Notwithstanding the release of the tape, Randy and his team will have their day in court regarding the ongoing lawsuit against the State of Texas in relation to the violation of his civil rights.

“Randy Travis is well-known to be a loving, caring person who is respectful of everyone, a video that shows anything otherwise only underscores that he was absolutely not himself. Randy is deeply apologetic for his actions that evening. A man of integrity with a good heart, Randy does not and will never condone these types of actions that distort the true beliefs of Randy Travis and his entire family”.

Travis was in a battle to stop the release of the tape. He argued that the footage should be considered private under health record privacy regulations.

Last week Travis was added to Madam Tussauds in Nashville.
