See Governor Rick Perry's New Mugshot

Aug 20, 2014

Texas Governor Rick Perry indictment over charges of alleged abuse of power left him required to something not common of a sitting governor: take a mugshot.

Perry turned himself in to have his mugshot taken on Tuesday at the Travis County Courthouse in Austin, Texas.

Perry ardently objects to charges laid out against him by the Travis County District Attorney. He stated on Tuesday that he remained confident because of his belief that "the rule of law would prevail."

Perry followed up his trip to the courthouse with a trip to an ice cream shop.
