Alcohol-related offenses? What, is TSA conducting Breathalyzer checks now?
Goof! Spoiled brat. “Do you know who I am?” lol. What a doofus.
Being 19, it could just be possession.
anyone care to bet that the coverage of this isn’t at least 10x the amount of coverage of Al Gore’s son’s arrest?
Oop.. disregard my previous... he was charged with being drunk and disruptive.
If a person is on a plane or in an airport acting like a total idiot, they don't need a Breathalyzer to arrest him for disorderly conduct. Perhaps the police did a BAC test when they were called.
Don’t be a drunken a-hole in public would be the lesson here.
Ok, his kid misbehaved and he’s a Republican; therfore he can nevermore be considered credible and should resign NOW! < /sarc >
the kid was popped at 11AM? someone has a little problem . . .
You may be right, or it may be that the TSA knows his dad is the biggest critic of the TSA in all of congress.......
TSA knows his dad is the biggest critic of the TSA in all of congress.......
That definitely could be a point as well.
The 19 yo kids was charged with: underage drinking, disorderly conduct and being intoxicated and disruptive.
It wouldn’t matter who his family was, he would have been an issue.
Unless, of course, you are a Democrat's son, like VA Representative Moran's son, for instance, who beat a girl, broke her nose and fractured her skull while drunk (among other things). He received a warning or something similar.
According to Lt. Blake Hollar with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Paul was intoxicated when he arrived at the airport and said “he was possibly served alcohol on the flight.”
The teenager was arrested by police and booked into the Mecklenburg County Jail, charged with three misdemeanors: underage consumption, disorderly conduct, and being intoxicated and disruptive.
Law: carding persons for age
Objective: destroy Rand Paul by any means necessary
I guess Rand won’t be considering that run for the White House anymore.
