Rand Paul’s Son In Trouble With The Law, Again

Sen. Rand Paul’s son William Hilton Paul “is facing a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol following a collision in Kentucky last weekend.” He was also cited for failure to maintain insurance.

According to this USA Today report, it’s becoming something of a habit for the younger Paul and his behavior when confronted seems to be a problem, too.

The charges mark the third time that William Paul has had a run-in with the law involving alcohol, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported on its site Kentucky.com.

According to the citation, Lexington police found Paul in the driver’s seat of the truck after it collided with a parked vehicle.  The report said Paul was “belligerent” and had “a strong odor of alcohol,” bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, Kentucky.com reported. He failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a blood test, according to the citation.

The elder Paul, currently running for the GOP nomination, had no comment. USA Today continues:

Paul, a senior majoring in communications at the University of Kentucky, was cited for possession of alcohol by a minor in October 2013 at the Keeneland horse racetrack.

In January of that year, he was arrested at the airport in Charlotte, N.C., and charged with simple assault of a 22-year-old flight attendant, consuming beer or wine underage, disorderly conduct and being intoxicated and disruptive on a US Airways flight.

The Charlotte charges were dismissed later under a deferred prosecution program for first time offenders, after William Paul completed alcohol education classes and 150 hours of community service, the newspaper reported.
