Rick Perry Took An Awesome Mugshot And Then He Got Ice Cream

$$$

Posted on

Texas Gov. Rick Perry got booked Tuesday after being indicted last week.

The charges — abuse of power and coercion of a public official — stem from his decision to veto funding for a county program. Perry cut off the state funding for a public integrity unit after the district attorney who runs it refused to resign, following her conviction for drunk driving. Perry has called the charges a "farce."

After he took that photo, he went and got ice cream.

And then, ice cream cone at #Sandy's
