The Texas state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland back in July during a routine traffic stop has been indicted on a perjury charge.
Bland's case gained national attention after she was found dead in her jail cell three days after being taken to the Waller County Jail. Authorities said her death was a suicide, but her family disagreed.
