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.

Can't blame the Kennedy seizures on Obama. They were seizing before he was born. Seizing booze during prohibition, seizing Chappaquidick, seizing the ocean with small planes. If there is karma, theirs is dark. Carpe diem, Kennedys.

Boo hoo hoo. Another sorry ass excuse for another sorry ass Kennedy. Hey, maybe the drunken murderer Ted had a seizure too when he ran off the bridge and then ran away and left Mary Jo Kopechne to die. Yeah, thats the ticket.

If she suffers from seizures she should have her driving liscense revoked and never be allowed behind the wheel again. She is a menace on the roadways and will get someone killed.

So "seizure" must be the new "exhaustion". Be prepared for Lindsay to have her own "seizure" in the near future.

"seizure" is the new "exhausted" or "dehydrated"

seems like "seizure" is the democrats latest way to elude responsibility (Obama's cabinet member used it too). Go doctor shopping and find a sympathetic doctor to say "seizure" and get off the hook. Too bad Teddy didn't use that when Mary Jo died. When will the Kennedy's ever take responsibility???

"Seizure" in Kennedy-speak = high on drug + being drunk.

I will have a seizure if I have have to endure another Kennedy story aside from their funeral.

If the blood screen shows no drugs or alcohol then yeah a seizure would be the next probability ... that family has a history of seizures, and health related issues going back generations.
