Kerry Kennedy Arrest

Family Reportedly Believe She Suffered a Seizure

Kerry Kennedy
's car crash and subsequent DWI arrest might have had nothing to do with drugs and instead could have have occurred because she suffered from a seizure -- this according to a new report.

Kennedy was arrested Friday AM after driving erratically and crashing into a tractor trailer on I-684 in NY. Police charged with driving while impaired by drugs after she allegedly admitted to taking an Ambien.

But a source tells the NY Post that the Kennedy family now believe the 52-year-old may have suffered a seizure instead. The source says, "She does not remember how she got to the side of the road. All she remembers is feeling very woozy."

The source adds that the Kennedy family now fears an undiagnosed medical condition may be to blame.

Following the incident, the source claims Kennedy's blood and urine tests (taken at Northern Westchester Hospital) showed no signs of drugs or alcohol. But the cops are still waiting on their own blood tests, which should be available shortly.

Kennedys and Commerce Secretaries have seizures now instead of DUI. This may explain Chappaquiddick.

First it was Ambien. Now they're calling it a seizure.
Why not call it what it really is, "wealthy, white, and connected -itis".

It's a perfect defense you can't prove or disprove someone had a seizure, It makes me wonder why lawyers haven't been using this more.

"She does not remember how she got to the side of the road. All she remembers is feeling very woozy." - Sounds like someone who's on ambien. From personal and professional experience, memory gaps/blackouts and feeling woozy are common side-effects of the med.

This is SO STUPID! These lyin'-@$$ rich people! Your money does NOT entitle YOU to anything! It's already been reported that Kennedy said she told cops she took an Ambien when she was found by the cops behind the wheel of a car! Duh!
