Framingham: An uncle of President Barack Obama has been charged with drunk driving in Massachusetts and is being held by immigration officials.

Onyango Obama was arrested last week in Framingham after
police said he made a rolling stop and nearly caused a cruiser
to strike his sport utility vehicle.

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 yesterday. 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.
