Country music star Randy Travis has filed a lawsuit to prevent the release of patrol car dashcam video of his drunken-driving arrest in Texas last year.

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 Austin American-Statesman reported Thursday that the lawsuit names the Texas Department of Public Safety and the attorney general’s office.

A judge originally granted a defense request to block the video from being released. But media groups requested the video from DPS, and the attorney general’s office ruled this month that the judge didn’t have discretion to bar the video’s release,

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