Anti-gun state senator was armed with 9mm, when arrested in Ferguson, refused breathalyzer

Anti-gun State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed was arrested in Ferguson Monday night – with a gun.

St. Louis County police said she was kneeling in the middle of the road chanting outside the Ferguson Police Department.

“Sen. Nasheed, along with another male, entered the street, were told numerous times by not only by the St. Louis County commander, but other officers on scene, that they needed to leave the street or they were subject to arrest,” St. Louis County Police Sgt. Brian Schellman said. “They failed to comply, and they were taken into custody.”

Nasheed was asked to take a breathalyzer test, and she refused, St. Ann Police Chief Aaron Jimenez told CBS ST. Louis.

She dodged questions from reporters after being released from custody. Watch News 4 video coverage here:
