PRESIDENT Barack Obama's uncle went to court for the first time in connection with his drunk driving charge.
As we reported here, back in August Onyango Obama stunned officers busting him for drunk driving by asking to call the White House after they hauled him in.
They say he made a rolling stop nearly causing a cruiser to strike his SUV and when they asked him if he wanted to make a phone call he told them: "I think I will call the White House."
"A few of the guys thought he was crazy and had a little chuckle about, but he insisted that was related to the big man," one officer said at the time.
"Guess he had the last laugh on that one."  
Originally from Kenya, Obama who is the half-brother of the president's late father pleaded not guilty after he was arrested last month in Framingham, MA.
But cops say he registered a reading of 0.14 percent on a blood-alcohol breath test. The state's legal driving limit is 0.08 percent.
He was initially held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on allegations that he violated an order issued nearly two decades ago to return to Kenya.
But he was later released and ordered to regularly check in with immigration officials.
