Texas court orders release of Randy Travis DWI video

Back in the late 1980s, Randy Travis was the undisputed king of country music.

Wild ride captured on video; driver charged with DWI

If you drive from Edinburg northeast along the Gulf coast for a few hours, you will come to Porter, Texas. A freelance photographer who works for a Houston TV station was recently driving on a stretch of road near Porter when he saw something very unusual: a pick-up truck drifted across the center line toward oncoming traffic, then off of the road entirely, and then careened back onto FM 1314.
