Travis was required to have an ignition interlock device in place on any vehicle he drives for the 2 years of his probation. As part of the plea, Travis will not be charged with the felony offense of Retaliation for which he was arrested on August 7, 2012.
Travis was found naked, lying in the roadway in rural western Grayson County after crashing his vehicle in a construction area. Troopers determined he was intoxicated at the scene. Travis was belligerent at the scene and during transport to a local hospital, but did not make physical contact with any responders. Travis blood was tested by the Texas Department of Public Safety and contained .210 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters.
“We feel it is appropriate in these circumstances,” said Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown. “His punishment is considerably more than is typically received on a DWI case. First time DWI defendants are rarely forced into in-patient treatment. He will be unable to leave the facility for 30 days. His fine and community service requirements are more than double what is usually received, and his probation term is the maximum available, and longer than the usual 18 months. All of that is appropriate in light of his behavior with the officers. I spoke at length with the officers involved, and they were in agreement with the outcome. We are all hopeful that Mr. Travis is on the road to recovery.”
The charge against Travis, alleging that his blood alcohol content was above .15, was punishable by one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
