Ronald Brandolini told CNN on Monday.Onyango Obama was arrested on August 24 after failing a field sobriety test, Brandolini said. An administration official confirmed to CNN that the arrested 67-year-old-man is the half-brother of President Obama's father. There was no other administration comment immediately available. According to a a federal law enforcement source who spoke on condition of not being identified, Onyango Obama was not legally in the United States and has been previously ordered removed from the country. His case is now going through the immigration process, the source said. According to a statement from Framingham police, an officer in an unmarked police cruiser stopped Onyango Obama just after 7 p.m. after a sport utility vehicle he was driving failed to make a proper stop at an intersection. Police said that when asked if he wanted to make a phone call, Obama said: "I think I will call the White House." 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.
