Sen. John Kerry's daughter is off the hook.

These politicians' kids. They get away with anything just because of their parents' pull ... or because the L.A. City Attorney decides not to prosecute them because they're actually under the legal limit for blood alcohol content in this case.

Early Thursday morning, Alexandra Forbes Kerry was pulled over and busted for DUI by the LAPD Thursday morning, refusing a blood alcohol test at the scene.

A formal test given to her at the police station showed her level was .06 ... under the legal limit of .08. Alexandra Kerry was released on bail shortly after.

Alexandra Kerry is off the hook in her DUI case.

She could have been prosecuted anyway, as all it takes is the court's judgment to deem you are under the influence in California and one sip is enough.

However, just as most people aren't issued speeding tickets for driving 40 in a 35, the D.A. has bigger fish to try and prosecuting a .06 is a non-starter.

That said, the dismissal was pretty much a foregone conclusion.

Alexandra Forbes Kerry, the daughter of U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate John Kerry, was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI.

Law enforcement sources say she was busted in Hollywood around 12:40 a.m. The 36-year-old film producer/director was pulled over for a traffic stop.

Alexandra Kerry was arrested and booked at by the LAPD, and released at 5:25 a.m.

She was arrested for being under the influence of an intoxicant.

This is Alexandra Forbes Kerry, daughter of John. What's with the logo? Trust us, we had to put it there. Apparently it was chilly the night this photo was taken. Brr!

Interestingly, she refused a preliminary test in the field, and by the time a formal blood test was conducted at the station, it showed a level of just .06.

Under California law, the legal limit is .08, but a driver can still be prosecuted, even under .08, if the vehicle is being operated unsafely due to alcohol.

Of course, given the far worse DUIs they see all the time, prosecutors generally won't go after people registering under a .08 unless their driving was extremely dangerous, so Kerry may be off the hook when all is said and done. We'll see.
