Kentucky Senator Rand Paul's son William Paul was arrested in Charlotte Saturday.
Police in North Carolina arrested Paul's 19-year-old son, William Paul at the airport. He was charged with three misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct at an airport and underage alcohol consumption.
Senator Paul's office released a statement saying, "Senator Paul is a national public figure and is subject to scrutiny in the public arena. However, as many parents with teenagers would understand, his family should be afforded the same privacy and respect they deserve in a situation such as this."
No word yet on how he got the alcohol or if anyone will face charges for serving him.
