Senator Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test, despite having a strong smell of alcohol. Nasheed was arrested and charged with violation of a Obey Lawful Order of Police and Manner of Walking in the Roadway. Nasheed claims innocence, stating that:
"It was a symbolic arrest - sending a message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully and that we want justice for Michael Brown, but we don't want it in vain," Nasheed said outside the jail Tuesday morning.
Nasheed claimed that she had come to the protest with the intention of being arrested. She spent the night in jail.
