AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Country star Randy Travis has sued two agencies to block the public release of patrol car video of his 2012 DWI arrest in North Texas.

The Austin American-Statesman on Thursday reported the lawsuit filed in Austin names the Texas Department of Public Safety and the state attorney general's office.

Travis in January pleaded guilty in Grayson County to driving while intoxicated. A judge sentenced Travis to two years of probation and ordered a 180-day suspended jail term. The judge granted a defense motion asking that the arrest video not be made public.

Media groups have requested the video from DPS. The AG's office ruled May 3 that the judge didn't have discretion to bar release of the video.

DPS and the AG's office didn't immediately respond to messages Friday.
