New details emerge in arrest of Ron Paul's grandson at Charlotte airportSubmitted by Neotheone on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 15:19
Have you ever woken up from an early January drunken stupor and wished you could reset the new year and start again? That's how William Hilton Paul probably felt when he visited the Queen City earlier this month.
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul's 19-year-old son was arrested Jan. 5 at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and charged with consuming alcohol underage, disorderly conduct at an airport, and being intoxicated and disruptive. His most recent charge - perhaps his most serious - is assaulting a woman.
The 2016 presidential hopeful's son - and grandson of libertarian cult hero and former presidential candidate Ron Paul - assaulted a 22-year-old US Airways flight attendant after being woken up from a nap upon arrival to Charlotte. Jessica Stutzman, who lives in Quakertown, Penn., a small burough about 30 miles north of Philidelphia, was not injured and is believed to have returned to work shortly after the incident. Calls to Stutzman's house were not returned.
