Grand Old Police Blotter: Shut Down The Blood Alcohol Count Edition
Is lawlessness heredity? Is the daughter of someone drunk with power the child of an alcoholic? Will a sitting Supreme Court justice pervert the court of justice for his own family, or does he only do that for his party?
Following the example of the men her father installed as President and Vice President in violation of the law, the adult daughter of Nino "Fat Hands" Scalia has been arrested for Driving While Tinsleyed and child endangerment:
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's daughter was arrested on drunken driving charges Monday night in Wheaton, police said.
Ann S. Banaszewski, a Wheaton resident, was arrested Monday around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Gamon Road and Longfellow Drive after someone reported seeing a possible drunken driver near the McDonald's at 2030 S. Naperville Road, according to a police press release.
Banaszewski's three children were also in the car, a 1996 Ford Ecoline van. At her request, the children were dropped off by police at a family friend's home, Wheaton Deputy Police Chief Tom Meloni said.
In addition to the drunken driving charge, Banaszewski was charged with endangering the life of a child. She was processed on both charges at the Wheaton Police Department and was released on a recognizance bond.
Meloni would not reveal the children's age, but said all three were under 17 years.
