Travis County DA sentenced for DWI



AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg refused a breath test, kicked her cell door and had to be placed in restraints according to her arrest records.

The Travis County prosecutor's office released the documents Friday after she pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and a judge sentenced her to 45 days in jail.
 
The police report details how a 9-1-1 caller reported her dangerous driving and how deputies      immediately realized her identity, even though she didn't have her driver's license. Once at the jail, she refused a breath test and resisted deputies when they tried to search her. They placed her in a special restraint chair.
 
A court-ordered blood test showed her blood alcohol level was .239, almost four-times the legal limit.
 
She has said she will not resign.
