Mary Landrieu’s Son Arrested for DWI, Hit-and-Run
Posted on Jun 14, 2013 in DUI/DWI, Local Issues
Shortly after 3:00am on Thursday evening, police spotted a car going the wrong way down Bourbon Street. After striking a pedestrian and failing to stop, police pulled the car over. The driver of the vehicle was U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu’s 21-year-old son Frank Snellings. After failing the field sobriety test, the police administered the breathalyzer, which was nearly twice the legal limit. Mr. Snellings was arrested for DWI, hit-and-run, going the wrong way down a one way, possession of an alcoholic beverage in a car, and not maintaining proper control of a vehicle. His passenger in the vehicle, who has yet to be identified, was charged with having an open container in a vehicle and public intoxication. Senator Landrieu asked for privacy during this time to deal with her son after the mistake he’s made. His bail was set at $9,000 and was released Friday morning.
