Who Got Rand Paul's Teenage Son Drunk on a 10 a.m. Flight?

9:50 PM ET There's something intriguing about how William Hilton Paul spent his Sunday morning: drunk on a 10:49 a.m. flight to Charlotte and then whisked into custody for being "disorderly" at the airport. The 19-year-old son of Sen. Rand Paul and grandson of former presidential candidate Ron Paul was flying from Lexington, where he's a student at the University of Kentucky, to Charlotte. It's just a 30-minute flight, so in order to get drunk tank drunk, Paul would've needed to do some serious pre-gaming at the frat house before heading to the airport or slam several airplane bottles en route. A Charlotte police officer said "he was possibly served alcohol on the flight." We're guessing it was a groggy flight attendent with some disciplinary measures on the way who did the serving. Just how disorderly did the young Paul get after landing, though? It's entirely unclear. Reports are bereft of specifics about the arrest, though it does appear that the teenager did pull the "Do you know how I am?" card on airport cops after they had detained him. Being a son of a senator didn't get him out of jail, though. Paul was booked into the Mecklenburg County Jail and later released on a $750 bond. He faces three misdemeanor charges: underage consumption, disorderly conduct, and being intoxicated and disruptive. Aside from the curious question of how Paul got so drunk so early, though, this is all entirely business as usual in the realm of politicians' kids behaving badly. It could actually be much worse.
