The Charlotte Observor –  Elisabeth Arriero  “The son of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, and the grandson of former presidential candidate Ron Paul, was arrested Saturday morning at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Police said William Hilton Paul, 19, was traveling early Saturday from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte. When the plane landed about 10:49 a.m., Paul was charged with consuming beer/wine underage, disorderly conduct and being intoxicated and disruptive.” New York Magazine – Andre Tartar  This occurred “Barely a day after his father, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, admitted that he’s thinking about a possible 2016 presidential bid — as the GOP’s “libertarian-Republican” savior.” WCNC.com NBC –  NBC Charlotte Staff “There’s no word on where he got the alcohol, or if anyone will face charges for serving the 19-year-old.

The spokesperson for Senator Rand Paul, Moira Bagley, released the following statement :

Sen. Paul is a national public figure and subject to scrutiny in the public arena, however, as many parents with teenagers would understand, his family should be afforded the privacy and respect they deserve in a situation such as this.

    If he’s old enough to be arrested and locked in a cell,
    he’s old enough for a drink. If he’s old enough to get married and
    have a family, he’s old enough for a drink. If he’s old enough to
    kill and die for this allegedly free country, he’s old enough for a
    drink.
