Gov. Rick Perry went for ice cream after being released from jail
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- What's a governor to do after getting booked on felony charges? Go for ice cream.

Minutes after he was fingerprinted at the Travis County Courthouse, Texas Gov. Rick Perry posted a photo Tuesday from his official Twitter account of him outside Sandy's Hamburgers in downtown Austin.

The photo shows Perry holding an ice cream cone, with his arm around an unidentified woman. His attorneys, David Botsford and Tony Buzbee, are standing nearby with their own ice cream cones.

Perry was defiant before and after being booked on two felony charges accusing him of abusing power when he vetoed money for a Travis County prosecutors' unit investigating public corruption.

Surrounded by dozens of chanting supporters, Perry called the indictment an abuse of power and said he was confident he would prevail.

St. Louis officer shoots, kills man wielding knife

(CNN) -- A police officer was involved in a shooting in St. Louis on Tuesday, and a man was pronounced dead in the incident, authorities said.

The Chief of Police for the Metropolitan Police Department, City of St. Louis, Missouri, tweeted that no officers were injured.

"Officer involved shooting in the sixth district. Suspect brandished knife at @slmpd officers," wrote Chief Sam Dotson.

Capt. Garon Mosby, with the St. Louis Fire Department, said a male subject was pronounced dead.

It was not immediately clear whether the officer killed him. The investigation is ongoing.

The shooting took place not far from Ferguson, Missouri, where the death of teenager Michael Brown has touched off violent nightly protests.

Gov. Perry to surrender this afternoon

AUSTIN - Texas Governor Rick Perry will surrender at about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday in Austin following his indictment last Friday on charges of abuse of power.

According to Governor Perry's lead attorney, Tony Buzbee, Perry will say make a few statements to reporters before he goes in and again when he comes out of the Criminal Justice Center. 

Sheriff's deputies will take his mug shot and fingerprints.  

"This is a complete waste of time and money, but he will do everything everyone else would have to do (in this situation.)," says Buzbee.

 

(Friday) AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been indicted for abuse of power after carrying out a threat to veto funding for state public corruption prosecutors.

The Republican governor is accused of abusing his official powers by publicly promising to veto $7.5 million for the state public integrity unit at the Travis County District Attorney's office. He was indicted by an Austin grand jury Friday.

Perry said he'd veto the funding if the district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, didn't resign. Lehmberg had recently been convicted of drunken driving. The state's Public Integrity Unit operates out of her office. When Lehmberg refused, Perry carried out his veto, drawing an ethics complaint.

Perry is the first Texas governor indicted in nearly a century.

He's leaving office in January, but he's a possible 2016 presidential run.

Johnny Manziel says obscene gesture toward Redkins shows lapse of judgment

LANDOVER, Md. (CBS) -- If the Cleveland Browns pick a quarterback based solely on numbers, there's not much either Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer did to show he deserves the job.

If the choice is based on maturity, the hot-shot rookie's obscene gesture lost him some ground to the nondescript sixth-year veteran.

Manziel raised his middle finger toward the opponents' bench as he returned to the huddle late in the third quarter of Monday night's 24-23 loss to the Washington Redskins. Truth be told, it was one of the few times a Browns QB actually found his intended target.

"It does not sit well," Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said. "It's disappointing, because what we talk about is being poised and being focused. ... That's a big part of all football players, especially the quarterback."

"I get words exchanged throughout the entirety of the game, every game, week after week, and I should've been smarter," Manziel said. "It was a 'Monday Night Football' game, and cameras were probably solid on me, and I just need to be smarter about that.

"It's there, and it's present every game, and I just need to let it slide off my back and go to the next play."

CBSSports.com NFL writer Will Brinson says any number of things could have triggered Manziel's obscene gesture.

"Perhaps (Manziel) was mad at his offensive line for sending him scrambling like a chicken with his head cut off. Maybe he was mad at the playcall. Maybe a member of the Redskins was smack talking him. Maybe he's just sick of Brian Hoyer," Brinson writes.

Meanwhile, Pettine needs to pick a starting quarterback. The performances were so unspectacular that the coach suggested he might audible from his previously stated plan of announcing his regular-season starter on Tuesday.

"All the options are still on the table," Pettine said.

Hoyer started Monday night and completed 2 of 6 passes for 16 yards. His self-assessment: "It probably couldn't have been any worse. It's disappointing. It was embarrassing."

Manziel, the No. 22 pick in the NFL draft, was 7 for 16 for 65 yards and a touchdown. Of his series early in the game, he said: "I really tried to force everything and not let it fly like I should have. I need to get better at that and throw the dang ball."

Those stats, as mediocre as they are, were padded by series against the Redskins' backups. In the first quarter - when Washington's starters were in the game - Manziel was 2 for 7 for 29 yards, and Hoyer was 0 for 2.

"They both missed some throws," Pettine said.

If there's any hint as to which way Pettine is leaning, it's worth noting that Hoyer started for the second consecutive game and played mostly with the first-team offense. Manziel was sent out with the reserves to play in the second half.

Manziel took advantage by leading a 16-play, 68-yard drive capped by an 8-yard pass to Dion Lewis for Cleveland's first touchdown.

But the six points were overshadowed by the one finger.

"A lot of people just scream out things that are very, very disrespectful," Browns cornerback Joe Haden said. "He's just got to zone it out."

1 missing, 3 rescued when shrimp boat overturns

BAYTOWN, Texas (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard says three crew members have been rescued from an overturned shrimp boat and it will resume a search for a missing man.

A Coast Guard spokeswoman says the boat capsized Monday afternoon in the Cedar Bayou Channel, sending four people into the water. Rescue crews suspended their search for the fourth person Monday night and will resume it Tuesday morning.

A Port of Houston Fireboat crew rescued two people who were stranded on top of the boat and a woman trapped under it.

It's unclear how the boat named Mr. Anthony overturned. Authorities haven't identified the crew members.
