The son of Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine was arrested after a melee at a rally in St. Paul, Minnesota Saturday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. 

Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, is the youngest son of Kaine, Hillary Clinton's running mate in the 2016 presidential election. He was arrested after counter-protesters disrupted a rally in support of President Donald Trump.

Linwood Kaine was arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot, according to the St. Paul newspaper. In the melee, anti-Trump protesters disrupted the rally with horns, whistles, and chants. Someone released a smoke bomb, as well, the paper reported.

Linwood Kaine, who goes by Woody, is a Minneapolis resident who attended Carleton College. He was released from the jail on Tuesday, law enforcement officials told the St. Paul paper. No charges were filed against him or the four others who were arrested.

Skirmishes broke out at the St. Paul Capitol building during the March 4 Trump rally. Kaine's son was seen with four people who lit fireworks inside the Capitol. Kaine "turned around and squared up to fight with the officer" after being detained, a St. Paul police spokesman said.

Linwood Kaine ran from the scene and was arrested down the street, according to The Washington Post. 

Sen. Kaine, a native of St. Paul, released a statement to the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

"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," the statement read.

The senator has an older son, Nat, who is a Marine serving overseas, and a daughter, Annella.
