Cops: Kennedy Under The Influence

The Smoking Gun is making the pill story a little harder to swallow. This is the 5 page report filed by DC police following Pat Kennedy's accident. The Smoking Gun notes that "the reporting officer checked off a box indicating that Kennedy was under the influence of alcohol and that the politician's ability was 'impaired.'" See it for yourself here.

Prescription drugs? Alcohol? A little bit of both? The fact that responding officers saw fit to check off the alcohol box and still forgo the field test is ridiculous but not surprising. I'm not defending the shoddy policework, but the Kennedys are powerful, powerful people. Pat didn't need to ask for special treatment; he only needed to show up.
