FOX 4 News – Dallas-Fort Worth: Gov. Rick Perry indicted:
A grand jury indicted Governor Rick Perry Friday for his attempts to remove Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg from office after she was arrested for driving while intoxicated last year in a case that made national headlines.
In April 2013, Lehmberg was arrested after a witness called 911, describing her as driving erratically, swerving back and forth into the bike lane, and into oncoming traffic. Officers at the scene reportedly found an open bottle of vodka in her car, and a blood sample obtained later that evening purportedly showed a blood alcohol level of 0.239—almost three times the legal limit—even that many hours later.
Not only did her arrest attracted headlines, but her belligerent behavior after she was brought to the police station—all captured on video tape—drew attention, as well. Lehmberg is seen blaming the police for destroying her political career, yelling and insulting them; demanding that they call Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton; sticking out her tongue; making faces; kicking at the door to her cell; and eventually getting restrained with leg irons, being strapped to a chair and wearing what is commonly referred to as a “spit mask,” which is usually used when a detainee is spitting or biting. To be fair, the video does not expressly show that happening, and Lehmberg’s defense attorney later claimed that the mask was used to “protect her identity.”

The Dana Show: Alleged Friend Of Officer Darren Wilson Offers His Side:
A woman claiming to be a friend of the officer involved in the shooting of Ferguson’s Mike Brown called into my program offering Darren Wilson’s side of the story. Video via my show’s flagship station, KFTK in St. Louis:
“The initial contact between the officer and Mr. Brown was not related to the robbery,” Thomas Jackson, the police chief, said during a news conference Friday afternoon.
Rather, it stemmed from the fact that Brown and his friend were “walking down the street blocking traffic,” Jackson said.
This explains why Brown’s friend said the stop was over the fact that the cops rolled up on them for just walking in the street — apparently, that’s pretty much what happened. They were walking in the middle of the street, and the cops stopped beside them to say “Get the f*** on to the sidewalk.”
Or so Darion Johnson says.
That matches up with what the friend told Dana.
