CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's son reportedly was charged with underage drinking and disorderly conduct on a flight from Kentucky to North Carolina.
The Charlotte Observer reported 19-year-old William Hilton Paul was arrested Saturday morning at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
The newspaper quoted Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Lt. Blake Hollar as saying it's possible Paul was served alcohol on the flight from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte.
When the plane landed shortly before 11 a.m., the son of the Republican senator from Kentucky and grandson of former presidential candidate Ron Paul was charged with consuming beer/wine underage, disorderly conduct and being intoxicated and disruptive.
In a brief statement, Senator Paul's office said "as many parents with teenagers would understand," the family requested their privacy be respected "in a situation such as this."
