Randy Travis’ naked arrest video has led to a legal tug-of-war and now the stroke-hobbled country star has sued Texas officials to keep them from releasing the embarrassing tape.

Travis filed a lawsuit against the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Attorney General in an attempt to block the release of video filmed during his 2012 DWI, TMZ reported.

According to reports, Travis had crashed his car while driving under the influence of alcohol. He then walked naked into a convenience store and when police arrived at the scene, he cursed and threatened the arresting officer.

The incident was captured by a police dashboard camera and now officials intend to release the footage to media.

Travis filed his suit on Sunday in the Texas federal court, The Wrap reported.

The suit says the release of the video “would run afoul of the Americans With Disabilities Act, as well as the 1st and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution.”

The suit further says that, although information about his arrest may have been released, “what is not known, and should remain private, are how his compromised medical condition and mental state affected his physical actions, mannerisms and words, all now explicitly memorialized in his medical records and made a basis of the treatments he received.”

Travis pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated after his 2012 arrest.

The Statesman reported the singer was found to be driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.21, which is more than double the legal limit to drive.
