As Twitchy reported, Ferguson, Mo., was relatively quiet Monday night, but police did arrest state senator Jamilah Nasheed and one other protester who in a Vine were shown blocking traffic by kneeling in the middle of a road and performing the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose.

CBS St. Louis today reports that Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test, and also that the senator had a gun on her at the time of arrest.

Just a reminder: attorney Eric Vickers is Nasheed’s chief-of-staff and was organizer of the Sept. 10 demonstration that had protesters flood I-70 to disrupt traffic.

Nasheed may have a permit for concealed carry, but to many the gun wasn’t a good look, since she’s also known for pushing anti-gun legislation.

Missouri Sen. Jamilah Nasheed arrested in Ferguson for blocking street?

Kidnapped? No.

Word on the streets of Ferguson, Mo., Monday night is that state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed was arrested. The story varies from person to person, but St. Louis Dispatch reporter Valerie Hahn says the reports are true.

It looks like a lonely night for a protest.

Eric Vickers, a staffer for Nasheed, was one of the leaders of the group that on Sept. 10 attempted to shut down I-70 by blocking it with demonstrators.
