Blood test shows Angela West wasn’t intoxicated when she was arrested on suspicion of DWI

The wife of Republican Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West tested negative for alcohol and drugs, her attorney confirmed.


A blood test taken hours after Angela West was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated last month shows that she had not been drinking the night she was taken into custody.

The blood test’s results, released Wednesday, show that the wife of Republican Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West tested negative for alcohol and drugs the night she was arrested, her attorney, George Milner, confirmed.

The Dallas district attorney’s office said Wednesday afternoon that it had rejected the case after reviewing the results.

“We sincerely appreciate District Attorney John Creuzot’s diligence in this matter,” Milner said in a written statement. “This is the right result, and we appreciate that honest justice was swift.”

West was arrested the evening of Aug. 20 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated while her grandson was in the car, police said.

She had been pulled over about 8:45 p.m. in the 2300 block of West Northwest Highway, near Harry Hines Boulevard.

On Aug. 23, Dallas police released a 19-minute video that included dash-cam and body-cam footage from the night of the arrest.

Allen West posted Wednesday afternoon on Twitter that he expects the entire video of his wife’s arrest to be released by the department. He also said he expects an apology.

  1. When paying attention to the kid in the car it’s easy to sway towards the shoulder but it looked safe. When the police pulled behind her she stayed straight in the middle of her lane.
    I don’t see anything else that could be probable cause.

    • ALL the “full Black” members of my family have been assaulted by police, including my brother as he cleaned out our dead dad’s office at my high school where he was a Track Coach.

      He called ahead to the front office, he had all the damn keys to the whole school, and yet…

      I don’t think anyone on other side of fam’s been assaulted.
