John Kerry's Daughter -- Busted

11/19/2009 12:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Senator John Kerry's daughter, Alexandra Forbes Kerry, was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

It went down in Hollywood at 12:40 AM. Alexandra, a 36-year-old film producer and director, was pulled over for a traffic stop, then arrested and booked at LAPD's Hollywood station. She was released at 5:25 AM.

Cops tell us Alexandra violated a traffic law which got their attention. They then conducted a field sobriety test and it appeared she was under the influence of an intoxicant. She was then placed under arrest. At that point, cops asked her to take a preliminary alcohol screening test in the field, but she refused.

Cops took her to the station and then conducted a formal blood alcohol test which showed a level of .06. Under California law, the legal limit is .08, but a driver can still be prosecuted -- even under a .08 reading -- if the vehicle is being operated unsafely due to alcohol.

The inside word -- the L.A. City Attorney probably won't prosecute Alexandra because generally they won't go after people with under a .08 unless the driving is really crazy.

*************************

Tragic accident when she was 17 years old. Unlike, however, Ted Kennedy, who was 37, when he was drunk and crashed his car into a river with a prostitute he had picked up. He managed to save himself like a coward, leaving the unconscious woman in the car to drown. He managed to get himself home with help of his equally evil friends to sleep off his drunken stupor. He didn't tell authorities about his "friend" until the following day. Needless to say, Teddy is probably feeling very, very warm right now at this very moment :)

The fact that you would call Mary Jo Kopechne a "prostitute" makes you a real ass...
And a liar.

The man Laura Bush killed was her boyfriend that had just broken it off with her. Coincidence? Or maybe every guy in town was her ex boyfriend too.

Wow TMZ. I thought you would comment on this story the same you would a Republican's daughter. But I see you follow the typical double standard.

There's nothing more refreshing than watching evil, hypocritical, anti-American liberals falling from their pedestals and destroying themselves. Love it!!!!

If you're going to tell the story, tell the truth. Mary Jo wasn't a prostitute. She was a secretary who worked for one of the people who attended that party the night she died. Kennedy repeatedly dove into the water to save her but it was pitch black (under the water) and couldn't find her. I'm not making excuses for Kennedy but Mary Jo was a passenger in his car and could have acted more responsibly by watching the road with him. As for Laura Bush she took another driver's life when she ran a stop sign and ploughed into his car. It just so happened he was a former boyfriend of hers. People have sympathy for her because she was a young girl when it happened, and that's just ridiculous! Noone should get a free pass in a situation like that. And in case anyone cares to know, her victim's name was Mike Douglas, a very popular boy at her high school.

Alexa,

Yes, let's TELL THE TRUTH, shall we? Kellie was 100% correct with her summary of the night Teddy boy murdered Mary Jo. Some may in fact consider a woman a prostitute when she's banging a married man, wouldn't you agree? Ha!!! Teddy said he tried to save her the FOLLOWING DAY, just as Kellie stated. He left her there to die because he was drunk behind the wheel and didn't want to be caught drunk.
