Caroline Biden, Vice President Joe Biden’s 26-year old niece, was arrested in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, New York on Tuesday morning. Police said she hit an officer when police arrived at her apartment responding to a fight between Biden and her roommate.
Biden was arrested on charges of obstructing government administration, resisting arrest, and harassment.
New York Police Department spokeswoman Kellyann Ort said that Biden “had an interaction” with responding police in which she “struck an officer.”
Vice President Biden’s media office had no immediate comment.
