AUSTIN -- Police audio and the 911 calls from the night of Rosemary Lehmberg's DWI arrest have been released.

"I'm driving behind a vehicle, that, this person's incredibly intoxicated. They're swerving all over the place. I've never seen anything like it," said a driver who called in.

The caller, Mark Weston, told KVUE News that Lehmberg drove in the bicycle lane along 620 for more than a mile.

Austin police ran the plate and found out that the car was registered to the Travis County District Attorney.

The incident took place on April 12. Lehmberg pleaded guilty to DWI last week and is serving a 45-day jail sentence.

An Austin attorney has filed a legal petition asking that she be removed from office. The Austin Police Association called for her resignation Monday.

Lehmberg has said she has no plans to step down.
