AUSTIN (AP) — A Travis County grand jury has declined to indict District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg over her jailhouse behavior following an April arrest for drunken driving.

Lehmberg said in a statement Friday she was grateful for the work of the grand jury.

In a video taken by authorities after her arrest, Lehmberg is shown verbally sparring with officers. At one point she says, “Y’all are going to be in jail, not me.”

Lehmberg pleaded guilty to drunken driving and served half of a 45-day jail sentence. Her refusal to resign from office following the arrest led Gov. Rick Perry to veto state funding for the Travis County office that prosecutes public corruption cases.

A special prosecutor is looking into allegations that Perry abused his powers by stripping those dollars.
