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.

She wasn't legally drunk. Let her go. She probably learned something and that's what's important. The longer I read posts on this site, the more I realize that celebrities are at an extreme disadvantage with their personal lives. Contrary to popular opinion, the everyday Joe gets by with much more than they do. I don't want to be anywhere near that fishbowl.

It would not have mattered if she was over the limit. Her Dad is a member of the Skull and Bones. They have a really long reach. If this even gets to Dec 10th I will be really surprised. This will not be heard of again.

In other words, she is INNOCENT/ not guilty, was under the limit and entirely within her legal rights, and the cops were wrong. End of *NON* story.

Dude?

What's with the stars over the boobies?

If she didn't want us to see her in all her nearly 'nekid' glory, she would not wear the see through outfit in public!

C'mon! Let those puppies free! As they were meant.
