President Barack Obama‘s uncle was arrested for drunk driving and is being held by immigration officials, RadarOnline.com can report.

Onyango Obama was arrested last week and charged with drunk driving after he made a rolling stop and his SUV was almost hit by a police cruiser.

When asked if he wanted to make a phone call he reportedly said: “I think I will call the White House,” according to the Associated Press.

Police said that Onyango Obama is from Kenya and is the brother of Zeituni Onyango, who finally won the right to stay in the U.S. after fighting a deportation order.

Onyango has hired an immigration attorney and is being held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

It seems DUIs are pretty bipartisan though — former President George W. Bush was arrested for a DUI in 1976 and former Vice President Dick Cheney was arrested twice for DUI in the 1960s.
