HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- The wife of Kansas Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce claims in a court petition over her arrest for driving under the influence that she was unlawfully stopped and never refused to take a breath test.

Sarah Bruce was arrested in December on suspicion of DUI. She is charged with refusing the request of law enforcement to submit to a preliminary breath test and operating a vehicle while the alcohol concentration in her breath was .159. Kansas' legal limit is under .08.

The Hutchinson News reports Bruce claims in her petition in Reno County that the officer unlawfully stopped her before asking her to take the test, and a physical disability prevented her from giving a complete breath sample.

The Kansas Department of Revenue has determined law enforcement acted reasonably.
