Robert F. Kennedy's daughter Kerry Kennedy was arrested in New York this morning after cops say she was driving while under the influence of drugs ... and crashed into a tractor-trailer.

The State Police released a statement saying they received 911 calls around 8:00 AM reporting a woman in a 2008 Lexus who was driving in an "erratic manner."

When cops arrived to the scene ... officers found Kerry's damaged car nearby ... with Kennedy seated behind the wheel.

Officers approached the vehicle and determined Kennedy was under the influence of drugs.

According to WABC in NY, Kennedy told the officers she had taken an ambien -- a powerful prescription sleeping pill.

52-year-old Kennedy was arrested and charged with driving while impaired by drugs.

Why can't they/all celebrities just drink/do drugs/whatever and stay the f*^* home and enjoy the buzz? Why do they feel compelled to get behind the wheel?

Get it together, Kerry. With a name like "Kennedy" you can get a lot of good things done in the world. Let your name stand for good, rather than this foolishness.

I used to take Ambien. That stuff is great, but you do not get behind the wheel of a car after taking it. 30 minutes after I would take one, it would be like a psychedelic trip.

Ambien strikes again eh.... *rolls eyes*
Maybe we should consider banning the sale of Ambien to politicians, celebrities and other legal untouchables - they seem especially prone to its side effects.

Ethel Kennedy's a lush. Her children should be more careful with the chemicals...

"Kennedy told the officers she had taken an ambien."


Nothing like incriminating yourself.

There's a problem here    

Those crazy Kennedys! They sure don't do much to dispel the stereotype of drunk Irish do they?

She's wracked with guilt over the death of Mary Richardson Kennedy. She knows they killed her... drove her to suicide.
