Antonin Scalia's Daughter Gets DWI

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's daughter was arrested this week and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and child endangerment, officials said Wednesday.

Ann S. Banaszewski, 45, of Wheaton, was arrested Monday evening while driving away from a fast-food restaurant in the suburb 20 miles west of Chicago, police said. Three children were inside Banaszewski's van when someone called police to report a suspected intoxicated driver, said Deputy Chief Tom Meloni.

Meloni would not release Banaszewski's blood-alcohol level. He also declined to give the children's ages or say whether Banaszewski had a previous record.

Well, her father endangered alot of children due to his assinine ruling in Bush V Gore, but I am hoping the woman gets herself some help. It's bad enough to drink and drive, but especially with kids in the car. Nothing too snarky to add, just that this is another example of the family values crowd, doing something not very family friendly.
