Randy Travis Releases Statement After 2012 DWI Tape Goes Public

After a lengthy legal battle, the footage from Randy’s 2012 DWI incident has been released.

The three-hour video shows a highly intoxicated, belligerent and naked Randy Travis after he crashed his 1988 Trans Am outside of Tioga, Texas. He later pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated.

While we are not going to post the video itself, we will post the statement released by Randy Travis and his team.

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.”
