Famous Country Singer's Naked, Drunk Driving Tirade Video Released By Texas Authorities

Randy Travis, a country music superstar, made headlines in 2012 after he was arrested for drunk driving in the town of Sanger, North Texas. Dash cam footage of the singer’s arrest has now been made public, showing the country singer butt naked and mouthing off at a police officer who was escorting him to his patrol car.

Mr. Travis was arrested in 2012 after he crashed his vehicle, with police confirming that his blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) was double the legal limit. Initially, the footage shows Mr. Travis in cuffs, being escorted from his crashed car into the passenger seat of the police vehicle.

Mr. Travis was completely naked and stumbling as he was lead to the police car.

“I pray to God that he will have a cancerous growth that infects his bones and every part of his body,” Mr. Travis can then be heard mumbling as he rides in the passenger seat of a police car, directing his insult to the trooper escorting him. “I’m sorry you feel that way,” the trooper responded, before taking Mr. Travis to jail.

The recently released footage was almost blocked by Mr. Travis, who filed a lawsuit in order to prevent its release. However, the 58-year-old’s request was denied in court. With the lawsuit still ongoing, Mr. Travis and his team have labelled the video’s release as a “violation of his civil rights.”

Mr. Travis’ team released the following statement in light of the video’s release: “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.”

"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 type of actions that distort the true beliefs of Randy Travis and his entire family."

Furthermore, Mr. Travis’ lawyer, Larry Friedman, also personally commented on the matter, stating “Randy Travis is a legend who will always be known for his influential singing voice and his contribution to country music; not for a single automobile accident and comments he made after he suffered a horrific car accident, striking his skull against the windshield of his car and then the pavement.”

“Randy has lived a life as an ambassador of goodwill, tolerance and acceptance. Cultural diversity is evident in his songs and actions,” Mr. Friedman continued. “Randy took responsibility and apologized for his statements 5 years ago and his apology was accepted by the troopers.”

“We now pray for Randy’s full recovery.”

Mr. Travis is not the only big celebrity to have been arrested for drunk driving, with celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber and Lindsey Lohan all being busted for driving under the influence amongst a number of other drug-related offences.
