http://www.washingtonpost.com/video/c/embed/2b6c8f64-b4f6-11e5-8abc-d09392edc612 grand jury in Texas indicted the state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old black woman who later died in a county jail last summer.

Trooper Brian Encinia, who arrested Bland during a traffic stop, was indicted Wednesday on a perjury charge, special prosecutors said.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said Wednesday night that it intends to fire the trooper as a result. Encinia was placed on administrative duty last summer.

Darrell Jordan, a defense attorney from Houston who was one of the special prosecutors, said the perjury charge was related to Encinia’s probable cause statement about the stop.
