Governor Perry Booked

Texas Governor Rick Perry turning himself into authorities today in Austin.

The governor was fingerprinted and took a mugshot photo.

He has been indicted on two felony counts of abuse of power.

Perry is facing charges of coercion and official oppression that carry a maximum sentence of 109 years in prison.

The charges come after he threatened to veto funding for a public integrity unit led by Democratic district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, when she refused to resign after a DUI arrest.

Perry says he plans to fight the charges, saying they're politically motivated.

He was released after the booking.
