Obama's uncle charged with drink driving

BOSTON, Massachusetts: An uncle of President Barack Obama has been arrested near Boston on charges of drink-driving, police said Monday. Onyango Obama was being held without bail on an immigration detainer - a status usually for people in the United States without a valid visa. He was arrested in Framingham on August 24 and charged in Framingham District Court with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Obama had "red glassy eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol," police Lieutenant Blaise Tersoni told AFP. Obama insisted he'd had "only two beers," but failed several alcohol tests, the police report said. The president's extended family on his Kenyan father's side made news last year when his aunt, Zeituni Onyango, who is the sister of Onyango Obama, won a court battle for asylum after being in the country illegally.
