Kennedy daughter arrested after crash
The Australian ^ | 07/14/2012 | AAP

Posted on 07/13/2012 7:39:14 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

GOVERNOR Andrew Cuomo's ex-wife, Kerry Kennedy, has been arrested for driving while impaired by drugs after she accidentally struck a tractor-trailer and fled, police say. Kennedy is the seventh of 11 children of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy. State police said she was found on Friday morning behind the wheel of her disabled vehicle on the side of a road in Westchester, just north of New York City.

Authorities say emergency services callers reported the car was driving erratically on Interstate 684 and collided with a tractor-trailer in the town of North Castle. The car was damaged and had a flat tyre, police said.

A spokesman for Kennedy, who lives in nearby Bedford, denied that she was driving under the influence of drugs.

"Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyser, blood and urine tests - all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system," spokesman Ken Sunshine said in an emailed statement. "The charges were filed before the test results were available."

...Police said Kennedy was issued traffic tickets that must be returned to the town of North Castle Court on Tuesday.

Members of the Kennedy clan who reside in the Westchester area have been beset with a string of public troubles in recent weeks.

Mary Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr, hanged herself in May at the family's estate in Bedford. A divorce was pending when she died. An autopsy report released last week showed she had antidepressants in her system.

Kerry Kennedy, 52, described her sister-in-law as her "best friend" in a eulogy published in the Huffington Post after her death.

"We were inseparable - we shared friendships, a closet, a cash card," Kennedy wrote.

Her brother, Douglas Kennedy, the 10th of the 11 siblings, is embroiled in a legal battle after two nurses claimed he injured them on January 7 when he tried to take his newborn son from a hospital maternity ward.

Kennedy, 44, said he was protecting his son "from a complete stranger who tried to grab him from my arms". A judge is expected to rule by August 9 on charges of physical harassment and child endangerment.

Kerry Kennedy and Andrew Cuomo wed in 1990 in Washington, joining two of America's important political families.

The couple split in 2003 in a messy public divorce that played out in the tabloids. They have three daughters.

If we would just incarcerate all of the Kennedys on suspicion of future vehicular homicide, a few more souls might still be on this planet and we would all be better off.

I know they can determine blood alcohol quickly, but I thought tox screens for drugs took weeks or months. No?

Right. But she did not cross a bridge, and she never had a meal with Kennedy and Dodd. Camelot will never die as long as the Kennedy remnant lives on. ‘nuff said.

She is blaming Ambien, at least according to another article.

You would think the Kennedys would've learned to avoid Ambien, after Patches's smashup on Capitol Hill a few years ago.

Sources told CBS’s Sean Hennessey that Kennedy was slumped over the wheel and had told police she had taken the sleep aid Ambien.

However, one retired police officer said that’s no excuse.

“If she’s taken prescription drugs, it’s probably telling her she shouldn’t be driving,” Jim Caravello said. “Most prescriptions that are narcotic are going to tell you you shouldn’t be on the road driving.”

Dirt? Have they tried that yet? It must be next on their list. ;o)

Seriously, any woman who would marry a Kennedy man has got to have a, figuratively speaking, death wish.

“Ambien”

AKA Patches.

Is that all they’ve got? Repeating the same story over and over?

Forgive me for being a tad judgemental, but that family is really messed up, and it bleeds onto their spouses.
