Despite his filing a lawsuit to prevent the release of video footage of the DWI arrest of a nude Randy Travis, Texas officials have released the video and Randy's publicity firm has issued an official statement.

An e-mail received from Zach Farnum, with the 117 Entertainment Group, states:

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.

Since this unfortunate incident occurred, Travis has suffered a stroke and is making progress in his recovery.
