Frank "Connor" Snellings, 21, the son of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., was arrested Thursday morning on charges of driving while intoxicated, hit-and-run driving, and driving the wrong way on a one-way street in the French Quarter, according to the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office.
The car Snellings was driving hit a pedestrian, who was not seriously injured, according to the sheriff's report. Snellings and a passenger in his car were not hurt.
"We love our son wholeheartedly, but we are extremely disappointed by his irresponsible actions last night," Sen. Landrieu said Thursday in a phone interview. "These actions have serious consequences both at home and in our legal system."
Landrieu asked people "to respect his privacy as we work through this challenging time for our family."

Funny how she wants us to respect HER privacy all the while she could not give a hoot about Obama's NSA violating OUR privacy.
When I went to LSU Baton Rouge back in the day, every other car on a Friday or Saturday night would be weaving. I think they’ve cleaned up some since.
stupid border got in the way! had to swerve!
He was on the way to Canada at its border with South Dakota.
Respect his privacy, got it - but how about MY privacy MaryLou, who never passed HS geography.
So sick of the stupid driving the bus here. Little miss backdoor dealer, tell me more about the ‘dumb’ fence you twit.
Too bad he wasn’t in South Dakota ... just skip over the line ‘til the heat dies down.
Man this cop is in big trouble. You don’t arrest the son of a member of the King’s Court. That’s just unheard of.
Maybe Mary should GO HOME and take care of her soon instead of trying to tell the rest of the country how to live our lives. GO HOME, MARY!
Your son needs you more than we do, trust me on that!
The car Snellings was driving hit a pedestrian, who was not seriously injured, according to the sheriff’s report. Snellings and a passenger in his car were not hurt.
The passenger in the vehicle has not been identified.
The Sheriff’s report said Snellings also was charged with possession of an alcoholic beverage in the car and of not maintaining proper control of the vehicle.
why does he have a different last name?
Please remember FRIENDS if this is to be a cut-down session on Landrieu that she is just about one of the most conservative Democrats around and shares many of our core values. Not all, but she speaks up. For this she has few friends in Mrs. Obama’s vegetable garden.
Maybe he got "married," and he's the "wife."
New Orleans ‘Red Hour’...party time.
You are using satire, right?
Landrieu voted for the Obama stimulus, Obamacare, tax hikes, the most anti-defense nominee in history to head the Pentagon, etc.
With that kind of "conservatism," I'll chose liberalism.
we are extremely disappointed by his irresponsible actions last night,” Sen. Landrieu said
Mary, disappointed is when your son fails Math..
disappointed is not strong enough WHEN HE NEARS KILLS SOMEONE
Was he on the border in S. Dakota?
Now the fact that she seems to think South Dakota is a "border state"...I can call her a total dumbass!!!
The nut never falls far from its’ tree.
She regularly slips out of her office to catch dinner with her husband, Frank Snellings, 52, a lawyer, and their two children, sometimes bicycling back to make a Senate vote. At adults-only D.C. receptions, she has been known to ignore the rules and bring along her daughter Mary Shannon, 4, and son Connor, 9. And a suitcase of toys sits at the ready near her desk.
To maximize time with her children, she and her husband live close to the Capitol in a rented townhouse not far from where Snellings, who does fund-raising for his wife, is overseeing construction of their new four-bedroom house. Landrieu flies home two or three times a month to meet with constituents but tries not to leave Frank and the kids for more than two nights at a time.
In 1992 they decided to adopt, although the private agency warned of a long wait. But in just two weeks they were called about Connor.
they had applied again to adoptlearned that a newborn girl was available in Baton Rouge.
When I went to LSU in Baton Rouge, the legal age for alcohol consumption was 18. Coming from a tiny high school in a dry parish in N Louisiana, LSU was a big culture shock for me.
I survived, but just barely...
Driving while drunk?? No Problem
Hit and Run?? No Problem.
But driving the wrong way on a One way street? There is no excuse for that.
That is just not accurate. She is very liberal, and a full-fledged Obama supporter. I live in Louisiana and know whereof I speak. Bill Cassidy, a GOP congressman from Baton Rouge, is running against her.
why does he have a different last name?
That is his fathers last name. Mary is married to Frank Snellings but has used her family name for political purposes, is my guess.
Hope she tells her son, “you did it, go plead guilty, and take your responsibility, like a man”.
If she hires him a lawyer and he pleads not guilty, they are both scummy people.
She dined with the moslem brotherhood back in 09 on St.Charles. She’s a traitor.
