The airline that flew Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s son shortly before he was arrested for underage drinking and disorderly conduct is denying it fed him alcohol during the flight.
“It is important to note that William Hilton Paul was not served alcohol onboard his US Airways flight from Lexington to Charlotte this past Saturday,” Todd Lehmacher, a spokesman for US Airways, told the Charlotte Observer
Paul, 19, was charged with three misdemeanors and released on $750 bond following his arrest at Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Saturday morning.
Afterwards, police said it was possible that Paul, a student at the University of Kentucky, may have consumed alcohol on the flight.
The teenager, one of Rand Paul’s three sons, is due to appear in court on Feb. 25th.
Sen. Paul’s office has asked for privacy in the matter.
