WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) - Williamson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. John Foster has been charged with DWI.
The Texas Department of Public Safety was the arresting agency, and his bond is set at $1,000.
According to DPS, on Saturday night Foster was driving northbound on IH-35 just south of Jarrell when a 911 caller called authorities and said a driver was driving recklessly in front of them. A trooper pulled Foster over, conducted a breathalyzer test on him and arrested him for DWI.
Williamson County Sheriff's Office said Foster is currently on paid administrative leave. Punishment will be addressed by the Sheriff after all relevant information is considered.
The Williamson County official is not the only authority figure to have had some run-in with police recently.
The sheriff's office, which operates the Travis County Jail, said Lehmberg had maintained "good-behavior status" since being locked up after she pleaded guilty to DWI on April 19.
Rosemary will be making arrangements to seek professional treatment and better understand her behavior.
Lehmberg, a Democrat in the first year of her second term, was arrested late April 12 in western Travis County and booked into jail after midnight April 13. Security video showed Lehmberg kicking her cell door and having to be restrained by jail staff while in custody.
The career prosecutor has said she plans to remain in office, despite efforts to oust her. Lawyers have said the two-term Democrat plans to retire when her term expires after the 2016 elections.
In-Depth: Public Integrity Unit funding
After a DWI arrest, a jail sentence, and a steady stream of written statements, Lehmberg re-emerged on June 18 to speak at the Travis County Commissioner's Court meeting -- looking for ways to get back $7 million in funding that was vetoed by Gov. Rick Perry.
Perry's veto ended state funding to the Public Integrity Unit that is housed inside the Travis County District Attorney's Office.
The PIU prosecutes cases of government fraud and corruption. They currently have 420 pending cases, 280 of which are in Travis County.
County Commissioners could choose to pick up the expense but want to be careful in how it burdens the budget and Travis County taxpayers.
The PIU has 35 employees and has been state-funded since 1982.
Suggestions that a resignation could help restore state funding were quickly dismissed by Lehmberg.
"If I resign now, which I'm not going to do, by the way, I don't think it will solve the problem, and that's what I want to do is solve the problem," she said during the meeting.
