I’m guessing it wasn’t the family Prius she was driving either.

So what? Why should this woman’s name in particular be splashed all over the news? If it was the public official himself I could see it, but why someone who is not in public service?

Drunk or siber at least she had enough on the ball not to let one of those Kennedy men take the wheel. You never know when an inconvenient bridge may surprise you.

What would the courts up there do, without the Kennedy’s to drum up business for them. Talk about jobs creation...

See what you can do to create jobs, if you just put your mind to it.

Most Kennedy spouses find it necessary to drink.

Folks, we need to cut this gal some slack. Being married to a Kennedy would drive anyone to drink...

The arrest of this woman wouldn't gather interest if the Kennedys weren't known for their drinking.

Mary Richardson Kennedy, 50, was arrested Saturday when police determined her blood alcohol level to be .011. The legal limit in New York state is .008.

Actually, the legal limit in NY is .08. I imagine that her BAC was actually .11 which would be illegal in any state rather than .011 which would be legal.

Why can't they get the facts straight?

Westchester's Journal News reports that Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s wife has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

The paper also reports this:

According to Bedford police records, officers twice responded to the Kennedy home on South Bedford Road this month.

Last Thursday police received a 911 call from the home. Officers responded because the caller hung up before speaking to police. Dickan provided no details, but records show that officers arrived at the home at 9:16 p.m. and remained for 48 minutes. They left after filing a New York state domestic incident report.

Subscribe to The Journal News

Three days earlier, on May 10, police received a call from the home reporting a domestic dispute between the Kennedy children, Dickan said. No details were provided in that incident. But records show that officers remained for 1 hour and 17 minutes.

There were no reported arrests in either of the incidents.

Anyone who drinks alcohol has been DUI one time or another....it's just a matter of getting caught.

It does tend to run in the Kennedy family though.

.11 is less than 3 drinks in an average adult male, and might be even less that in an adult female. Hardly worth the adverse publicity, arrest record, court fines, add-on fees, rehab classes, license restriction and increased insurance premiums, which can add up to $10,000 or more over time (which goes into the pockets of local governments and legislative lobbyists). The lesson there is: Call a taxi instead!

Ever notice that you never see any Kennedy cab drivers? It's not like they need the money, but it would never work to begin with. You can run a business when you kill more clients than you gain.

Wait until she kills someone then cover it up and give her a ticket for leaving the scene. SOMEONE has to carry on the tradition ...

I was beginning to think there was hope with Ted Kennedy being dry and sober, how many days now?

Is that part about Kitty Dukakis and hair spray for real? I’ve never heard that one before.

Hey, she’s Irish and a Masshole...and married to a defective Masshole (that’s one from whom the M departed). It’s her freakin’ birthright to drive drunk.

I use Kennedy alcohol-related arrests as reminders to change the batteries my smoke-detectors, as it’s more reliable than Spring Forward/Fall Back.
