According to Fox News, the son of former Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine was arrested on Saturday for disrupting a pro-Trump rally in Minnesota.
The Twin Cities Pioneer Press, a local newspaper in the Minneapolis area, reports that:
“Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, and four others were arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot after the “March 4 Trump” rally in St. Paul; a sixth person was cited for disorderly conduct. Counter-protesters clashed with Trump supporters in the Capitol rotunda after they disrupted the proceedings with air horns, whistles and chants. At one point, someone set off a smoke bomb.”
According to the newspaper, it took three police officers and pepper spray to subdue Kaine. He is also believed to have been one of the protesters who set off fireworks in the middle of the protest.
No charges have been made against Kaine thus far, but St. Paul City Attorney, Samuel Clark, is considering pursuing misdemeanor charges.
