Democratic VP candidate Tim Kaine’s son, Linwood Michael Kaine, has been arrested.
Kaine and four others were arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot during a March 4 Trump in St. Paul.
Kain was one of 50 people who showed up to counter protest the nearly 400-strong Trump supporters during the march.
Counter protestors, including Kaine, entered the rotunda with chains, air horns. Someone lit a smoke bomb. Participants broke out pepper spray and tasers. A skirmish erupted.
A 61-year-old woman alleges she was hit in the head by the smoke bomb. Police report she was not injured.
Police report Kaine was seen with four people who lit fireworks inside the Capitol and then fled. Kaine was found a block from the Capitol and resisted the officer while being taken into custody.
St. Paul Police spokesperson Steve Linders said:
Kaine was seen with four people who lit fireworks in the capital and fled. Police were investigating whether Kaine lit a firework. No one from Sen. Kaine’s office contacted the department.
Senator Kaine released a statement:
We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” he said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.
