The Most Serious Misdemeanor Knows No Stranger

November 19, 2009: Sen. John Kerry's daughter was arrested in Hollywood for allegedly driving drunk. The 36-year-old Alexandra Kerry was stopped by officers on a Hollywood street at about 12:40 a.m. Thursday and failed a sobriety test. [she never should have voluntarily taken].
Officer Bruce Borihanh says she was booked at the Hollywood police station and was held for about five hours. She was released at about 5:30 a.m. after posting $5,000 bail. Borihanh didn't immediately have other details. Alexandra Kerry is the eldest daughter of the Massachusetts senator, the Democrats' 2004 presidential nominee. She has produced documentaries and has had several small acting roles.

Increased insurance rates for the foreseeable future is just one of the many problems that will come if she pleds out or is convicted.
