The Texas state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland, who later died in custody, is under indictment on perjury charges. A Waller County grand jury decided to indict Trooper Brian Encinia today, although details haven't been released.
Encinia pulled Bland over last July on a traffic violation. Dashcam video from the stop shows both Encinia and Bland yelling at each other, then moves off camera where a struggle of some sort happens. Bland was arrested on accusations she attacked Encinia during the traffic stop. She was found dead in her jail cell a few days later from a suicide. The grand jury decided last month not to indict anyone in connection with her detention and death.
