The 19-year-old son of Sen. Rand Paul and grandson of Ron Paul was arrested on Saturday morning for disorderly conduct, underage drinking, and public intoxication at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the Charlotte Observer reports. Police suspect William Hilton Paul, 19, had been served alcohol on his flight from Lexington, Kentucky, which landed just before 11am. The senator's office issued a statement saying "as many parents with teenagers would understand, his family should be afforded the privacy and respect they deserve in a situation such as this."
