John Kerry’s Daughter Alexandra Kerry Arrested for DUI
Alexandra Forbes Kerry, the daughter of Senator John Kerry, has been arrested in Hollywood for allegedly driving drunk. According to the Associated Press, 36-year-old Alexandra was stopped by officers on a Hollywood street at about 12:40 a.m. last night and failed a sobriety test.
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.
Alexandra is the eldest daughter of the Massachusetts senator, the Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee. She has produced documentaries and has had several small acting roles. She last co-produced the documentary Be Like Others, which was provocative look at a generation of young Iranian men choosing to undergo sex change surgery.
Alexandra has made headlines for being scandalous in the past; she wore a see-through dress at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, leaving very little of her chest to the imagination. She’s definitely one of the more interesting political kids. Although the Bush Twins have been involved in some of their own controversies, Jenna has certainly settled into a pretty squeaky clean life as a teacher and correspondent for The TODAY Show.
Alexandra is also an author; her 2008 book Notes From the Trail tells an unlikely account of an artist reporting the behind-the-scenes madness of her father’s presidential campaign.
