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.

Notice how "professional" and non-personal the writeup is regarding her arrest. I'm actually surprised the TMZ Nazis even posted this. But can you even begin to imagine if this was one of Bush's or Palin's daughters? Not only would the entire article have been insulting and biased, but there would have been at least 3 follow-ups by now.

What's this skank doing anyways? She's 36 years old. Shouldn't she be home with her husband and kids? Ooops, my bad. She's a kook and no respectable, intelligent or successful man wants anything to do with her.

Biden's daughter arrested for doing Coke.
Let's see (once again) if the mainstream media reports it.

Nah...that's just when the Palin daughter gets pregnant.

If you must whine, get it right: L.A.P.D. not the Sheriff. Pay attention.

Why is it that when a celebrity or well known politician adult child is stop for a traffic violation; arrested for a crime or a victim of a crime or some other issue their name is used. They are not that child responsibility and I see no reason why their name should be made public. In this issue Alexandra Forbes Kerry is well over the age of l8 and if you are going to publish something about her it should be in her name only.
