Framingham: An uncle of United States President Barack Obama has been apprehended over the charges with drunken driving in the US State of Massachusetts and is being investigated by immigration officials.
Police said Onyango Obama was arrested last week in Framingham after he made a rolling stop and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his SUV.
The 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 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.
