New questions are being raised about the sleeping pill Ambien after Kerry Kennedy, the ex-wife of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, may have been under the influence of the sleeping aid when she was involved in a crash with a tractor-trailer on a New York highway and left the scene. She claims she was ‘sleep-driving.’
Kennedy was arrested and charged with driving while impaired Friday. She claims that she took the sleeping pill Ambien shortly before she drove her car into busy New York traffic. She is due in court Tuesday.
SatireWorld has learned that Kennedy told police she had been taking Ambien sometime Friday morning. But her family said in a statement released to ABC News that there were no signs drugs were involved.
“Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyzer, blood and urine tests …all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system. The charges were filed before the test results were available,” the Kennedy family said in a statement released Friday.
The results of Kennedy’s toxicology tests are still pending. But legal analysts say whatever they show could play a big role in her defense where she’ll claim ‘it was somebody’s fault, not mine.’
“Ambien has a short half life, so by the time she went to the hospital and by the time her blood was analyzed, the drug actually could have disappeared from her system,” criminal defense attorney Dana Cole said.
Others were asking, “What kinda moron takes a sleeping pill just before getting in an automobile and driving in rush hour traffic?”
In the past, Kennedy clan members had a reputation for doing many stupid things including, having a family member in Congress who drove into a Capitol grounds barricade in the earely morning hours claiming ‘someone snuck it into the roadway when he wasn’t looking’…Shortly after, this same Congressman checked into rehab! Another infamous Kennedy exploit while driving was the famed USS Oldsmobile incident were Uncle Ted Kennedy killed his aide by driving off a wooden bridge while getting a blowjob…He immediately left the scene and his sinking car while his female aide was left to drown in the submerged car.
Defense attorneys for Kerry Kennedy are exploring the possibility of blaming George W Bush, since the FDA approved the sleeping drug during his administration.
