Obama's uncle arrested on drunk driving charge
Police said that when asked if he wanted to make a phone call, Onyango Obama said, "I think I will call the White House."
Framingham (Massachusetts): An uncle of President Barack Obama has been charged with drunk driving in Massachusetts and is being held by immigration officials.
Onyango Obama was arrested last week in Framingham after police said he made a rolling stop and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his sport utility vehicle.
Police said that when asked if he wanted to make a phone call, the 67-year-old Obama said, "I think I will call the White House."
The White House had no comment on Monday. Onyango Obama is from Kenya and is the half-brother of the president's father.
A spokesman for a Cleveland immigration attorney representing Onyango Obama said he is the president's uncle.
