Justice Scalia’s Daughter Charged with DUI

Posted by Lawrence Taylor on February 14th, 2007

As readers are aware, I’ve railed repeatedly in the past about the "DUI Exception to the Constitution" — the clear willingness of our Supreme Court to ignore the Bill of Rights when it comes to dunk driving cases.  That appears about to change:

Scalia’s Daughter Charged with Drunk Driving

Wheaton, Ill., February 14.  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.
