Police asked Travis if he had been drinking.

"Yes, sir, I have," Travis responded. "But I am not driving, as you can see."

After a cop told the country singer, "Here's what's going to happen tonight ... You're going to go to jail for public intoxication," Travis said, "Really? Are you kidding me?"

Police brought Travis to the county jail and released him about four hours later on a Class C misdemeanor citation.

He released a statement explaining, "I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl. I'm committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions."
