More bad news for the Kennedys: Kerry Kennedy, the ex-wife of Gov. Cuomo and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested Friday morning on drug-related charges.
Kennedy was nabbed by State Police after taking off following a collision with a tractor-trailer on I-684 in the town of North Castle in Westchester County.
State Police said they found Kennedy, 52, sitting behind the wheel of her disabled 2008 Lexus RS 350 on state Route 22. The car had sustained damage, including a flat tire.
An investigation is said to have found Kennedy had been operating the car while her ability was impaired by drugs.
Kennedy is the sister of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose wife, Mary, recently hanged herself.

In the old days only the Kennedy men were scumbags.....
Must be Hell to be a Kennedy woman.
another one bites the dust
Not another Kennedy? Who else?
Isn’t the anniversary of Chappaquidick coming up? Perhaps she was just getting in shape for it.
The Kennedy Family - the Democrat’s equivalent of the Gotti Family!
A Kennedy left the scene of a car accident ?
Shocking huh ?
And tomorrow the MSM will be full of stories once again blaming this behavior on “the Kennedy curse”.
A new era: scandalous Kennedy broads!
Poor Uncle Teddy must be rolling over in his grave.
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
She claimed Ambien.
Or so sayeth ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer.
Update: Kennedy spokesman Ken Sunshine said in a statement, Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyzer, blood and urine tests all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system. The charges were filed before the test results were available.
as in angel dust, this time. she lives. she will get slap on wrist.
Nothing 90 minutes in jail won’t fix. Throw the book at her Judgy.
According to WABC in NY, Kennedy told the officers she had taken an ambien — a powerful prescription sleeping pill.
Presumably, non-morons are excluded from journalism. There is no such thing as a “Lexus RS 350”. Maybe the national car of affluent middle-class suburbs is meant, the Lexus RX350.
driving while being bummed out over being a kennedy.
that’s worth a slap on the wrist.
DANG! At first read I was hopeing it was JFK(John F Ke(rry)enndy....
Pathetic. 52 years old and getting stoned behind the wheel of a luxury car she didn't do anything to pay for.
I wonder if Joe and Rose Kennedy knew that their loins would produce so many generations of losers and no-accounts. Spoiled offspring who never had to work an honest day in their lives, knowing that they had multi-million dollar trust funds coming due to them.
Not that Joseph Kennedy Sr. was anything close to being an honest and scrupulous businessman or anything, but he did earn his own money so one can't begrudge him his lavish lifestyle and high living.
His kids and grandkids though...with very few exceptions, nothing but a bunch of spoiled, arrogant, overprivileged brats who either sponged off trust funds or U.S. taxpayers.
I guess that's the curse of being a self-made rich person. Most of your kids will grow up with no work ethic and no appreciation of the hard work you did to give them the lifestyle that they take for granted.
There's an old saying regarding wills that goes something like this: "Give your children enough to do something with their lives (i.e. a college education) but not so much that they do nothing at all."
Where’s the allegiance to the UAW?
Kennedys and the internal combustion engine have never played well together.
Even the Kennedys now drive Japanese cars.
Those Kennedys should really consider walking more, they seem not to have the best of luck with vehicles.
at least it wasn’t upside down and underwater when it became disabled.
I gave $100 to Kennedy’s opposition in Mass today. The Republican, Sean Bielat - marine, good guy.
They should also consider working more. They seem to have too much leisure time on their hands.
Isn’t this normal for a Kennedy?
Isn’t this normal for a Kennedy?
It wasn’t powerful when I was trying it for a little while over 10 years ago.
“She claimed Ambien.”
If proven true, I will give her a break. I took it. It caused me to walk in my sleep. Almost burnt down my house whilst on it. A cop friend said he’d pulled over people while driving on Ambien. They were clueless to what was happening. Not a good drug. A good history must be done before it is prescribed.
A classless family despite all that wealth and fame. Money cannot buy charm.
Why is KK taking Ambien at 8am?
WHAT THE HELL IS That//???????? UGLY....FUGLY!!!
Them Kennedy’s love their Ambien
Kennedy’s Crash Highlights Dangers of Ambien
May 5, 2006
After he smashed his Ford Mustang into a barrier near Capitol Hill early Thursday morning, Rhode Island Rep. Patrick Kennedy released a statement, saying that he had been disoriented by two prescription medications he had taken.
One of which was Ambien, a prescription sleep aid.
While Kennedy said he was “disoriented” in his statement, police officers described him as “intoxicated.”
How could using Ambien, the nation’s most widely used sleep aid, explain his behavior?
Kennedy’s situation echoes a growing trend, police and toxicologists say. In some states, Ambien has made it onto the lists of the Top 10 drugs found in impaired motorists.
One doctor questioned Kennedy’s decision to get behind the wheel with two prescription drugs in his system.
“To get in a car in the first place was dangerous,”
A neckbrace? And Teddy was standing next to him? No shame, absolutely no shame in that family.
The Kennedy Trustee works harder on keeping them out of jail than running the investments sense Teddy can’t give him stock tips anymore
Key omission: through bootlegging and insider trading
Joe Sr. was a real paragon of virtue.
How many more generations to go before they clear the “sins of the father” curse?
I wonder who her Godfather is. I only ask because her sister’s (Kathleen Kennedy Townsend) Godfather was Joe McCarthy, which I always found interesting. It turns out that Robert and John were both huge fans of McCarthy, Robert tried to get hired by him. (Seems that some democrats back then didn’t like communism, as hard as that is believe these days)
Hey, she probably had a cold and took some cold medicine. Let those who have never had a cold throw the first stone.
