Rick Perry Celebrates Legal Victory with Sandy’s Custard

Former Texas governor Rick Perry celebrated the dismissal of criminal charges against himself by grabbing a celebratory frozen custard cone from Sandy’s Hamburgers. As documented on his official Instagram account, Perry opted for a swirl while his companions went with vanilla and chocolate, respectively. He also shared a quote from Lieutenant Colonel William Barret Travis' "Victory or Death" letter written on February 24, 1836.

This wasn’t the previous Republican presidential candidate’s first visit to the classic custard spot. In 2014, after he turned himself into the Travis County Criminal Justice Center for felony charges, Perry headed to Sandy’s for a post-booking vanilla cone, shared on his Twitter account, complete with a hashtag.
