(END SOT) CONGRESSMAN PATRICK KENNEDY IS NOW


TRYING TO CLEAR UP THE FOG

SURROUNDING A CAR ACCIDENT HE HAD ON
CAPITOL HILL. IT HAPPENED AROUND

THREE-O'CLOCK THURSDAY MORNING AT THIS
INTERSECTION. OFFICERS SAY

KENNEDY WAS DRIVING A GREEN FORD

MUSTANG WITH HIS LIGHTS OFF, SMASHED

INTO A SECURITY BARRICADE, AND ALMOST
HIT A POLICE CAR.



THE RHODE ISLAND REPRESENTATIVE AND SON
OF SENATOR EDWARD KENNEDY BLAMES

THE INCIDENT ON A COMBINATION OF
PRESCRIBED DRUGS ... INCLUDING THE

SLEEP MEDICATION AMBIEN.



KENNEDY SAYS SOME TIME AFTER TAKING THE
PILLS ... HE DROVE A FEW BLOCKS

TO THE CAPITOL BELIEVING HE NEEDED TO
VOTE .. AND BECAME DISORIENTED.



BUT CAPITOL POLICE OFFICERS ARE TELLING
A DIFFERENT STORY.



(SOT: LOU CANNON/PRESIDENT, CAPITOL


POLICE UNION)

"The officers on the scene smelled
alcohol about him and based on their

experience believed him to be
intoxicated."



THE OFFICERS SAY THEIR BOSSES KEPT THEM
FROM GIVING THE CONGRESSMAN A

BREATHALYZER.




(STANDUP BRIDGE)

ACCORDING TO THE HEAD OF THE POLICE
UNION, LOU CANNON, THE OFFICIALS AT

THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT HERE DECIDED
THAT KENNEDY SHOULD BE

TRANSPORTED HOME...AND THE
INVESTIGATION INTO THE ACCIDENT WOULD

CONTINUE AT A LATER TIME.



KENNEDY INSISTS NO ALCOHOL WAS CONSUMED
BEFORE THE CRASH, AND THAT HE

NEVER ASKED FOR ANY FAVORS.

BUT SOME OFFICERS SAY THIS WREAKS OF
SPECIAL TREATMENT.



(SOT: CANNON)



"I think because of who he is
courtesies were extended."



UNION OFFICIALS WERE SO MAD ABOUT THE
HANDLING OF THE INCIDENT...THEY

SENT A LETTER TO THE CHIEF OF POLICE.
IN IT, THEY COMPLAIN THE

WHO IS PERCEIVED TO BE PRIVILEGED AND

way for Appalachian Power customers.

APCO is asking for more than
198-million dollars in rate increases.

If approved, the new rates would
increase revenues by 25 percent in
Virginia.

That means a customer who uses
a-thousand megawatts a month- or about
fifty dollars in bills.. would pay
about 13-dollars more.

(END SOT) Turns has applied to more than just the


driver of the 29 car doing laps on the
race track this season. Harvick who
took over driving for Richard Childress
racing in the Cup Series after the

death of Dale Earnhardt, has been the
topic of conversation and speculation
by many as to who he would drive for in
2-thousand and 7, with his contract at
R-C-R up at the end of the season.
Everyone else is talking about it
except Harvick when he was asked about
it this week.

(HARVICK:)

One of Harvick's teammate's at
R-C-R Jeff Burton was more acceptive to
talking about the topic.

(BURTON:)

the things going on away from the
track haven't affected Harvick's
performance, he is in the top 10 in
points and has one win this season.

(HARVICK:)

A resolution to Harvicks future
could be known by Friday. THere is a
Press Conference scheduled at Richmond.
