Rand Paul's Son Arrested at Airport for Underage Drinking, Receives Special Treatment by Authorities

The 19-year-old son of Sen. Rand Paul and grandson of former presidential candidate Ron Paul was arrested Saturday morning for allegedly being intoxicated at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport.

While in the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office, reports say William Hilton Paul identified himself as the son of Sen. Rand Paul.

William Hilton Paul posted the $750 bond Saturday and was released from Mecklenburg County Jail.

Apollo, the kid was arrested, booked, charged, and bailed. Where is the special treatment?

Zackly, Bob S. And might I note that this is the first time I've agreed with you in a long, long time.

I can only offer that I flew drunk at 19 and was neither arrested, booked, charged nor bailed. It's pretty evident that Hilton was treated differently.

Seems like he told them he was Rand Paul's son, and he was promptly released on a measly $750 bail. I doubt the same would have happened to your son.

Apollo, he went through the entire process and made bail. 750 dollars is the normal bail for someone without a record and is not a flight risk. Again, I ask, where is the special treatment?

I doubt the same would have happened to your son.

That's true, I'd suspect there would have been no bond, just a ticket.

The "kid" is 19, old enough to kill ragheads in Afghanistan, but god have too much to drink while walking?

Do I sympathize with daddy ? Yes, a stupid son making a mistake and the grand statesman for dad!

A mediocre attempt at assignation by name recognition !

Where in the linked to

Where in the linked to article is it said that Paul "punched out anyone"? The only reference to any aggression is this: "it's now been disclosed that Paul the younger faces "a misdemeanor assault on a female by aggressive physical force,".
I'd be willing to bet that most if not all of us have either been intoxicated or consumed alcohol at 19 years of age. Bringing criminal charges for 18-20 year old adults who have consumed alcohol is not a good use of LEO or court manpower.
And... reinventing and embellishing an event is not a good use of time to read or respond to.

measly $750 bail LOL. 19

measly $750 bail LOL. 19 year old drunk drivers in Maine have zero bail and the entire fine is less than $750.

You can't make this idiocy up some times.

Its too bad in Apollo's

Its too bad in Apollo's obsession to discredit himself he doesn't understand basic words.

Two separate offenses against the person that when used in one expression may be defined as any unlawful and unpermitted touching of another. Assault is an act that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent, harmful, or offensive contact. The act consists of a threat of harm accompanied by an apparent, present ability to carry out the threat. Battery is a harmful or offensive touching of another.

Clearly "punching someone out" is not an act that creates a threat but an act that is harmful. SO he would have been charged with battery.
