Prosecutors have said the singer was found naked by a road after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am. He pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to two years’ probation, according to The Associated Press.

The Texas Department of Public Safety and the attorney general’s office didn’t comment Friday.
