There are more legal trouble for state Representative Borris Miles of Houston. A husband and wife who Miles allegedly pulled a gun on during a holiday party filed a lawsuit against Miles. They also requested an injunction to force Miles to submit to a blood test. The couple says Miles forcibly kissed the wife and want to know whether she contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

"The defamation, the humiliation my clients have suffered," said plaintiff attorney Michael West. "Not only the wife for being treated that way, but the husband for being humiliated in such a fashion."

Late tonight, Miles' spokesman told us he and Miles are discussing the lawsuit, but would not comment further. The Harris County district attorney's office is investigating this incident.
