Travis explains that had the officers asked him to just get in the car instead of putting the handcuffs on him, he would have 'prayed for you to have help for thsi.'?
'You know something, I've seen miracles happen through prayer,' he said. 'I pray for you to have the biggest growth on your head,' he begins to say, before the officer starts laughing.??
When the officer asks him what he did to offend Travis, he responds: 'you put these godd*** handcuffs on me.?
'You insulted me by locking me up in a godd*** cage, basically, with handcuffs behind me with my d*** hanging out.
'And I'm proud of my d***, it's bigger than most, but you insulted me. You're a dead man.'??
'Randy's behavior was extremely altered the evening of his arrest due to the state of his mental health, and substances in his body, causing him to do and say things that were entirely out of character,' his rep told TMZ after the video was released Monday.?
He also said Travis suffered a concussion in the crash. ?
Travis' representative also said the star is 'deeply apologetic for his actions that evening.
'A man of integrity with a good heart, Randy does not and will never condone these type of actions that distort the true beliefs of Randy Travis and his entire family.' ?

His wife, Mary, was also denied a request by the federal court to sue on his behalf.
Initially a video was released that showed the arrest but cut Travis off above the waist so his full naked body was not shown?
