(Newser) – John Kerry supports daughter Alexandra after her recent DUI arrest, he says in a statement, adding that she was originally pulled over for expired registration and was released after a breathalyzer test found she was under the legal limit. But a police officer tells People Alexandra was stopped “for a DUI investigation,” and TMZ points out that she also failed the field sobriety test. Her hearing is Dec. 10, but sources maintain she most likely won't be charged.
