Kerry Kennedy was arrested for driving under the influence on July 13, but the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy swears alcohol played no role in why she slammed into a tractor trailer.
Appearing in North Castle Town Court last night, Kennedy pleaded not guilty and then addressed reporters, zeroing in on the claim that she failed various field sobriety tests.
Kennedy said toxicology tests showed "no alcohol, recreational drugs or prescription medication in my system," but neurological tests revealed an area of hyper density" in her brain.
"This accident was caused not by a sleeping aid but by a complex partial seizure," Kennedy said, adding that the aforementioned area is the result of an old injury.
Kennedy will return to court in August.
