President Obama’s uncle was stopped by police last week on suspicion of drink driving after going over a stop line and nearly causing a collision.
Onyango Obama is thought to have contacted the White House for bail.
There has been some confusion over his immigration status however, a spokesman at immigration and Customs Enforcement – ICE failed to comment.
Obama, 67, was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and failure to yield the right of way.
Obama originally told police he had nothing to drink but later changed his story to having had two beers. When he was breathalysed, he failed the legal drink driving limit.
So no matter who you are and what your status or relationships may be, we must all be law abiding citizens.
