Son of Sen. Rand Paul arrested at N.C. airport
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police say Sen. Rand Paul’s son was arrested after a flight from Kentucky to North Carolina.
The Charlotte Observer reports that 19-year-old William Hilton Paul was arrested Saturday morning at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and charged with alcohol-related offenses.
The newspaper quotes Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Lt. Blake Hollar as saying it’s possible Mr. Paul was served alcohol on the flight from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte.
When the plane landed shortly before 11 a.m., the younger Mr. Paul, the son of the Kentucky Republican senator and grandson of Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Republican and former presidential candidate, was charged with consuming beer/wine underage, disorderly conduct, and being intoxicated and disruptive.
In a brief statement, Sen. Paul’s office said “as many parents with teenagers would understand,” the family requested their privacy be respected “in a situation such as this.”
