The infamous summer incident, in which Travis crashed his car on a Texas highway—and, prior to that, entered a convenience store stark naked—yielded official results that showed his blood alcohol level at the time was nearly twice the legal limit allowed by the state.
The DWI ranks as a Class A misdemeanor, which means Travis may face up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.
Travis also landed in hot water the night of his accident for allegedly threatening the officers who transported him to jail. He still faces a possible retaliation charge, which counts as a third-degree felony if he’s convicted.
There’s no court date set yet for Travis. The August 7 crash was one in a series of tangles with the law—in February 2012, he was arrested for drinking in a church parking lot; and shortly after his car wreck, he was in trouble again for allegedly brawling with a man in another church lot.
Travis’s lawyer reported to the media in late November that his client has kicked the booze, is maintaining a health-oriented lifestyle, and is in the studio working on new music.
