expanded coverage: governor indicted
His head held high amid cheers, Gov. Rick Perry was booked into the Travis County criminal justice system Tuesday after surrendering to sheriff’s deputies shortly after 5 p.m.
Within a matter of 15 minutes, Perry was in and out of the county’s Central Booking Facility, where officers fingerprinted the state’s top elected leader and snapped a mug shot that quickly spread worldwide on social media.
After leaving the facility, Perry and two of his attorneys took a photograph in front of Sandy’s Hamburgers on Barton Springs Road and posted it on Twitter.
