Sen. Tim Kaine's son arrested at anti-Trump protest

The son of Virginia Senator and former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine was arrested over the weekend during a protest against a "March 4 Trump" rally.

24-year-old Linwood Kaine, who also goes by "Woody," was among 5 people arrested, and was taken in on suspicion of felony second-degree riot.

Ramsey County Sheriff's Office says that "Woody," was released on Monday morning and no charges have been filed against him.

Kaine and about 5 or 6 others dressed in black and set off fireworks and smoke bombs in the State Capitol, according to the St. Paul Police Department.

Officers eventually caught up with Kaine and had to use a "chemical irritant" and a strike to the knee to get him into custody.

Sen. Tim Kaine and his wife released the following statement on their son's arrest:

"We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues.  They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully."

If this kid was anybody else's son he wouldn't have been let off the hook so easily.

Get a job "Woody."
