Police: Kennedy was swaying after NY auto accident

Police say Kerry Kennedy, NY governor's ex-wife, was swaying and slurring after auto accident By The Associated Press

ARMONK, N.Y. (AP) Police say Kerry Kennedy was swaying and slurring her speech when police found her after her car hit a tractor-trailer on a New York interstate.

In court papers released Tuesday, a North Castle police officer also alleges that Kennedy failed a standing-on-one-leg test and a walk-and-turn test Friday morning.

He says Kennedy told him she may have accidentally taken a sleeping pill instead of her thyroid medication.

The 52-year-old Kennedy is Gov. Andrew Cuomo's ex-wife. She is the daughter of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and niece of President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy is due in court Tuesday night for arraignment on a charge of driving while drug-impaired. Her lawyer says she will plead not guilty.

He says he will comment on the police report at the court appearance.
