Travis pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated. A judge sentenced him to two years' probation and ordered a 180-day suspended jail term.

The judge also 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 doesn't have discretion to bar the video's release.

DPS and the AG's office didn't respond to requests for comment early Friday.
