Texas Governor Rick Perry has been indicted by a grand jury in Texas on two counts of abuse of power and coercion over threats he made last year where he was seen as trying to force a local prosecutor to resign, Reuters have reported.

Perry, seen as a possible Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential race, was charged with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official.
