Being 19, it could just be possession.

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.

The newspaper quotes Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Lt. Blake Hollar as saying it's possible Paul was served alcohol on the flight from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte. Are you allowed to serve alcohol to a nineteen year old? If not, did he present fake ID?.

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.......

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.

Bingo. Good chance TSA a-holes targeting Paul’s family b/c of his criticism of Obammy’s airport Gestapo.

Rand Paul needs to have “the talk” with all of his kids that they won’t be able to get away with anything. They are now in the public eye.

19 years old? I thought one reached his majority at 18 years of age. If so why doesn't he have the rights of all citizens? Can we tell other older age groups that they cannot drink?

19 is underage for drinking (personally I think its stupid).

If he had been drinking and NOT disorderly and disruptive he would not have been arrested.

The drinking will be added on because of the other stuff.

When I first saw the article, I thought that it was intentional on the part of the Paul son - because Rand had more or less encouraged us to fight back against TSA. Of course, this guy is 19, and I was not there, so it could have been just a boy being a boy too.....

"Hey Rand, old chum. You gonna behave this term,
or does your family haveta have some fed trouble?"

A STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE In the 1930s, when the National Socialist German Worker's Party (AKA the Nazi Party), was consolidating its power in Germany, its storm troopers regularly terrorized its opponents: showing up when they spoke to shout them down and intimidate them, vandalizing their messages, and sometimes attacking them outright. We are rapidly approaching the same situation in America today, as the Left's demonization of its opponents descends to this menacing new level.

Dateline 2016: "Coming up next on 'The Situation Room': We discuss Sen. Paul's presidential campaign, and whether his son's alcohol problem should be an issue. On our panel: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius and CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley."

My wife and I saw this on the News this morning, and in the report it claimed He Was SERVED BY THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT, Why has the Flight Attendant that wilfully and ILLEGALLY served this “minor” Alcohol not in JAIL???? We said the same thing to each other at the same time, so Where is the report of Arrest for Furnishing Alcohol to Minors??

This all smells of a TSA setup, they just “love” Rand Paul and the rest of the Paul family....

I would HATE to fly if my last name was Paul even if I wasn’t even related to Rand...

It is completely, insane, but the TSA has plenty of reasons to target the Paul family because they are jack booted tyrants...

Sen. Rand Paul's son was arrested after a flight from Kentucky to North Carolina.

He either got on the plane drunk or they served the underage drinker on the plane.

Expect these sorts of things to happen to anyone who might have 2016 juice. The strategy is to scare 'em. If that don't work, to burn 'em. If that don't work, to mess 'em up real bad. All before any organized opposition money can get behind them.
