Allen West, a retired Army Lt. Colonel says his wife’s breathalyzer test came up negative; blood test results are pending. The traffic stop came along west Northwest Highway.

Gubernatorial candidate West insists his wife was drinking water and lemonade at a dinner engagement.

West took to twitter early Sunday morning in a display of anger and disgust with the Dallas Police Department, specifically for the arrest which he contends was made without cause, and the fact that, according to West, his infant grandchild was “left on the side of the road with two Dallas Police officers until his daughter arrived to pick him up.

West later posted a video on social media showing receipts of her purchase at PF Changs which show that she ordered lemonade.

Meantime, the Dallas Police Association issued a statement standing by it’s officer in question and its members in general. The written statement in part, accuses West of “sensational attention seeking,” adding that the proper venue to argue the merits are not on the side of the road or on social media.
