Video: Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg's Drunk, Wild Night in Austin
As you may recall, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was recently busted for drunk-driving in the Austin area.
It was around 9:45 p.m., Friday, April 12, when Travis County deputies pulled Lehmberg over, after a report about a suspected drunk driver.
According to her arrest affidavit, Lehmberg's eyes appeared watery and bloodshot, her speech was slurred and her body was seen swaying. Officers also indicated that Lehmberg had some issues with field sobriety tests.
As they say, however, a picture is worth a thousand words. And in this case, video is worth even more. The Travis County Attorney’s office has released footage from the night.
Austin lawyer Kerry O'Brien is filing suit against Lehmberg. He wants a judge to force her to resign.
"I don't want Ms. Lehmberg to be dragged through the public and embarrassed, but when you hold a position of power you have a responsibility," O'Brien said.
How do you feel? Why not take a look at the video.
Lehmberg is in the Travis County jail serving a 45-day sentence after pleading guilty to DWI.
