Kerry Kennedy, ex-wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was swaying and slurring her speech when police found her after her car hit a tractor-trailer on a highway, police said in a court document.

[Snip]

Kennedy, 52, failed a standing-on-one-leg test and a walk-and-turn test, was swaying and demonstrated impaired speech and motor function, the officer wrote.

Now Kennedy maintains that "she had a thyroid medication and a sleeping medication (believed to be Ambien) and it is possible she took the sleeping pill instead of the thyroid pill."

I need some Freeper help ... didn't cousin Patches try pretty much the same excuse ... right before they threw his butt into rehab?

I’m sure everything will seem a bit clearer to this LEO after a nice gift has been made to his favorite charity.

.."she had a thyroid medication and a sleeping medication (believed to be Ambien) and it is possible she took the sleeping pill instead of the thyroid pill."

Sounds a lot like "when I woke up,Mary Jo and the car were gone"....or "how was I to know that the babysitter was only 13?"

Outstanding! Of course you understand that some here are far to young to get it.

The whole crowd are probably walking around with diuretics and blood pressure medications ~ that can cause VERTIGO in the susceptible.

You really have to watch this stuff, and I can only imagine the Kennedys are the last people on the planet who will bother. They are the kind for whom a "buzz" is a "buzz"~!

Easy to confuse the two pills if you’re drunk.

It has been a difficult year for Kennedy family members in the New York suburbs. Kennedy's close friend and sister-in-law, Mary Kennedy, hanged herself at home in May. Her brother Douglas Kennedy is fighting charges stemming from his attempt to take his newborn son from a maternity ward.

These Kennedys bring all this nonsense on themselves yet the press portrays it as bad luck or tragedy or "difficulties." The family is a trailer trash mess with money, period. They cause their own difficulties, including this lush getting behind the wheel. She should just be thankful she isn't dead or didn't kill anyone.

Unfortunately, you're correct.

It don't mean a thing if you ain't heard that swing......

"she had a thyroid medication and a sleeping medication (believed to be Ambien) and it is possible she took the sleeping pill instead of the thyroid pill."

That's a good one - even better than 'the dog ate my homework'.

I'll have to remember that one the next time I'm pulled over and charged with driving intoxicated (as if)...

Heck, I've had Rxs for Ambien CR 10mg & 12.5mg for 2½-yrs, and although I don't take it anymore, the Drs keep refilling my scrips. I must now have 700-800 stockpiled in the freezer (w/silica gel), and the stuff's dirt cheap. It works. I've never had those bizarre episodes of cooking/sleepwalking/driving etc, and since I don't drink, it's never a problem if I take one occasionally. It'll be a great barter item if SHTF.
