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.
