Randy Travis to Arresting Officer: 'Are You Kidding Me?'

02/16/2012 at 09:30 AM EST



Nearly two weeks after Randy Travis's arrest for public intoxication in Texas, a police video has surfaced that shows the country star cooperating with officers as he's handcuffed and taken to jail.

In the clip (watch above), recorded by a dashboard camera in the police car, officers approach a parked car where they find Travis. They ask his name, which he gives, and then ask if he's been drinking.

"Yes sir, I have," responds Travis, 52, "but I'm not driving, as you can see."



After police pull a bottle of wine from the car, they inform Travis he's being arrested for public intoxication. His response is one of surprise.

"Really? Are you kidding me?," he asks, before he repeats the question.

In the arrest video, which also depicts officers driving Travis to jail, the singer, who by this point was handcuffed, worries aloud: "Will anyone here drive me back to my vehicle?"

Travis was arrested on Feb. 5 in Sanger, Texas, charged with a misdemeanor, then released a few hours later. The following day, the "Honky Tonk Moon" singer released a statement, accepting responsibility for the incident.

"I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl," he said. "I'm committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions."
