As we reported back in March, Tim Kaine’s son (that would be the son of Hillary Clinton’s running mate) was arrested in connection with violence at a pro-Trump rally.
Now he’s facing criminal charges in court.
The New York Post reports:
Tim Kaine’s kid hit with criminal charges after disrupting pro-Trump rally
The son of former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine will face criminal charges for his role in a violent smoke bomb-fueled riot that broke out at a pro-Trump rally, according to a report Friday.
Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, of Minneapolis, Minnesota — whose father was Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate — was slapped with three misdemeanor charges tied to a melee in St. Paul, the Pioneer Press reported.
The charges, which were filed by the Ramsey county attorney Friday, include fleeing police on foot, concealing his identity and obstructing the legal process with force, according to the paper.
The Virginia senator’s son was initially busted on second-degree riot charges after a fight erupted between protesters and supporters on March 4.
One of the demonstrators allegedly tossed a smoke bomb into the crowd — striking a 61-year-old woman in the head, the Pioneer Press reported at the time. Others unleashed pepper spray and blew whistles and airhorns amid the chaos, according to past reports.
The riot broke out after roughly 125 protesters — some wearing black and covering their faces — stormed the rally of 400 people.
It’s just one more reason to be happy that Hillary and Kaine didn’t win.
