Is this the end?

Good luck.

The newspapers are calling for her to step down, a law suit has been filed to remove her from office.

Is this how her 35+ years as a prosecutor will end?

3:50 p.m. update: Jailers placed Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg in restraints early Saturday morning after her drunken driving arrest to protect her from harming herself, according to jail records.

Lehmberg had been placed in an isolation cell for protective custody but she refused several orders to stop kicking the cell door and was put in “the emergency restraint chair,” the records say.

According to an inmate incident report, Lehmberg also resisted a pat-down, refused to comply with officers, tried to scratch and grab an officer’s hand and yelled.

She was handcuffed and “leg-ironed,” according to the report.
