Assault Charge Filed Against Sen. Rand Paul's Son

Source: WBKO



A new charge has been filed against Senator Rand Paul's 19-year-old son William Paul.

WCNC in Charlotte, North Carolina reports that Mecklenburg County Sheriff's office said Paul has a new charge, assault on a female by aggressive physical force, a misdemeanor.

William Paul was arrested last Saturday at Charlotte Douglas International Airport on alcohol related charges including consuming beer/wine underage.

It is not clear if the two incidents are related.

3. Prison for the hoi polloi

but - mark my words - this overprivileged little bastage will skate, getting probation and *maybe* time in rehab. The rules of society are meant for the 'little people,' yunno.

but I doubt if prison is the norm for a misdemeanor, especially if it is a first offense.

OTOH, maybe Some People should be made an example of...

9. Assaulting a flight attendant?

I would think that would be a felony. Interfering with a member of a flight crew is serious stuff.

Pretty sure if he had a different name the charges would be more serious.

16. Interference with a flight crew is a felony.

I guess Aqua Buddha must have divinely intervened and dropped it down to a misdemeanor.

Here's what happens when an ordinary asshole hands a flight attendant a card asking "What if the plane ripped apart..?" after she would not let him place his bag beneath his seat (mind you he did not assault her):

Man on Hawaiian flight to be charged with felony

Portland, Ore. A 56-year-old Salem man, whose behavior on Hawaiian Airlines Flight 39 caused it to return to Portland International Airport, will be charged with a felony, said acting U.S. Attorney Kent Robinson on Friday.

Joseph H. Johnson will be charged with ""interference with a flight crew" which holds a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, Robinson said.

34. Interference w/ flight crew, felony. Assault on a female using aggressive physical force misdemeanor

Nothing wrong there. Coming from the same state that didn't outlaw marital rape until 1993. I guess that's improvement.

or do any real time. He will also be accepted to a Ivy league school if he so chooses. It's sickening.

27. Ha, that is definitely

funnier than the apple analogy which I just tweeted.

That entire family really makes me nauseous. I had a "discussion" with an online friend awhile ago who is a hard core Ron Paul supporter. He tried to convince me that Rand wasn't named for the author. He said just check out Senior Paul's page - his official name is Randall. Have you ever known anyone you thought was intelligent but their true self happened to emerge? I seriously was stunned - and saddened. After the third or fourth diatribe about PBO and drones, I had to cut him off.

I wonder how in the world couples with different political persuasions (ala Carville and Maitlan) make it? I certainly couldn't. But then, Carville is an odd one. A very odd one.

13. those pesky assault laws are infringements on our FREEDOM!

nowhere in the Constitution does it say that a 19-year-old cannot get drunk and assault a flight attendant.

And don't forget the head stomper. Nice.

21. Old-fashioned privilege. There used to be a rug to sweep this stuff under, but enter social media

and the rug is gone. It's taking more sophisticated tactics to disguise the apples falling from the tree.

30. Yep. Old fashioned affirmative action for the privileged class.

But it's a cardinal sin when the U.S. Gov't allows this for the underprivileged in our society - especially when black or brown.

Looks like a lot of kids I knew with violent tendencies. It's the way he holds himself not the actual way he looks.

From the article:

Police said William Hilton Paul, of Bowling Green, Ky., was traveling early Saturday from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte.


Hilton? Is there a tie-in between these two families?
