According to WDIV in Detroit, Elena -- currently the head of global marketing at Ford -- ran the curb and drove onto the median ... before eventually swerving back into traffic.

Police confirm Elena was pulled over -- and she failed a field sobriety test. Her 11-year-old son was in the car with her at the time.

Ford's attorney released a statement saying, "Ms. Ford recognizes that this is a very serious matter, and she expresses her deepest apologies for the embarrassment this has caused her family and others around her."

The statement continues, "Ms. Ford has cooperated fully with law enforcement and will continue to do so."

Apparently the drinking was from the inner turmoil caused by the fact she is a flaming lesbian.

NEVER take the FIELD TEST. You can be sober and a PIG can still fail you. You can pass all their dirty little tests and still go to JAIL. Tell the OINKERS to go to hell and make them give you the blow or blood tests back at the station. You are going to jail anyway and if your close to the limit this will give you some time to get legal. I hope this helps all you losers.

Ms. Ford? Are you sure that isn't Mr. Ford? Was that picture supposed to be a "glamour shot" of he/she for the company magazine? a little photo shop might have gone a loooong way with this one.

as to endangering herself and other driving drunk? YEAR in jail, first time, period. As for endangering her son in the car? Tack on another year.

This Sh*t would stop if there were real consequences to driving drunk instead of 'Next time? you're in REAL trouble buddy!" FIRST time should not be "pay a fine and go to court ordered AA".

Ya THINK? I'd like to know who would be stupid enough to go to one of the ridiculous "dating' sites to meet "your true love" I'm thinking it's probably a Russian or Ukrainian prostitution ring?.
Either way...if you go, you deserve that virus.

Wow stupid mother could've killed her child!! Hope she uses some of her money to get herself into AA now! Children's services should step in and take her son away until she can prove she can stay sober. That should be a wake up call to her!
