Cover-Up? Another Kennedy Car Crash

The news is still developing but Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), son of Sen. Ted Kennedy, was involved in a car crash with very few details released. Hummm...
According to the Drudge Report excerpt below:

[ ROLL CALL reports: According to a letter sent by Officer Greg Baird, acting chairman of the USCP FOP, the wreck took place at approximately 2:45 a.m. Thursday when Kennedy's car, operating with its running lights turned off, narrowly missed colliding with a Capitol Police cruiser and smashed into a security barricade at First and C streets Southeast. ]

[ Baird wrote that Capitol Police Patrol Division units, who are trained in driving under the influence cases, were not allowed to perform basic field sobriety tests on the Congressman. Instead, two sergeants, who also responded to the accident, proceeded to confer with the Capitol Police watch commander on duty and then “ordered all of the Patrol Division Units to leave the scene and that they were taking over.” ] For more details - Drudge Report-Article

Hummm Who passed that law, that Congress is allowed to pass on basic field sobriety tests????? Duh!!! .....Sounding pretty fishy to me!!! Will update. Earlier Reported Bipolar Disorder and prior alcohol and drug treatment for Patrick Kennedy.
