NORTH CASTLE, N.Y. — The former wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and daughter of the late U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was arrested Friday morning on drug-related charges after New York State Police in Somers investigated a hit-and-run car accident on Interstate 684 at about 8 a.m. Friday.

Officials said they received 911 calls from several motorists who reported a white vehicle operating in an erratic manner that had collided with a tractor-trailer in the southbound lanes south of Exit 4. As a result of the collision, the car sustained damage and a flat tire, left the highway at Exit 3 and became disabled on State Route 22, according to police.

North Castle police said they located the vehicle and found 52-year-old Kerry Kennedy of Bedford seated behind the wheel of the 2008 Lexus RS 350. State police arrested her and charged her with driving while her ability was impaired by drugs, a misdemeanor.

Kennedy's spokesman Ken Sunshine denied she was impaired. “Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyzer, blood and urine tests – all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system,” he said in a statement. “The charges were filed before the test results were available.”

Tickets were issued, and Kennedy was released on her own recognizance. She is due back in North Castle Court on July 17 at 6 p.m.

I truly found to this unique and original site recently. I was seriously grabbed with the part of assets you've got here. Big thumbs up for creating such fantastic website!acne scars


People should track their insurance claims to verify being charged the right amount, that the insurance paid the required portion of the claim, and what will be owed after everything is settled. When facing a serious illness with multiple visits to providers, it can be even more difficult to track your claims, but a careful system and attention to detail can help. Thanks.


You are joking right cjmesq??


I'll bet Andrew Cuomo is glad she never took his name but the media will continually mention she is his ex wife..


How could she besmirch the good name Kennedy with a DWAI arrest? This is so shocking.
