District Attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg in restraints in jail

SKY NEWS

A Texan District Attorney has been sentenced to 45 days in jail after being caught drunk driving.
Rosemary Lehmberg, who is in charge of prosecuting in Texas' Travis County, was caught on video in a police station obstructing officers as they attempted to process her arrest.

The video, taken by jailers for evidence purposes, shows the 63-year-old slurring her speech and behaving erratically.

She was filmed kicking on her cell door and shouting at officers, reports Sky News.

She had been arrested earlier after being seen driving dangerously, with an open bottle of vodka found in her car.

The lawyer is considered one of the most powerful district attorneys in the US state of Texas.
She also was also filmed asking officers to "call Greg", referring to Travis County Sherriff Greg Hamilton.

At one point, when a female police officer tells Lehmberg she has been arrested for driving while intoxicated, the DA says: "That's y'all's (your) problem, not mine."

At another point, as officers are trying to remove her jewellery, she says, “Y’all are gonna be in jail, not me.”

Officers who looked after her in custody accused her of being uncooperative and aggressive, saying they were forced to restrain her with handcuffs and leg irons.

She was also forced to wear a 'spit mask', a white mask used on prisoners who attempt to spit on jailers, which officers said was for her own protection.

Police found the DA's blood alcohol level was nearly three times over the legal limit.

At a court hearing, Lehmberg was fined £2,600 and banned from driving for 180 days after pleading guilty.

Many in Texas have called for her resignation but so far Lehmberg has refused to quit.
The position of District Attorney in America is a political one, with lawyers elected by the public to the position of public prosecutor.

I predict she keeps her job and her fellow demorats will defend her. This is what happens when democrats think they are above the law and can get waivers to everything.

No way she should be able to prosecute anyone for anything. How can you be allowed to punish people for breaking the law when you can't even follow it
