(WTVR) The youngest son of U.S. Senator Tim Kaine was one of five people arrested Saturday after police said they disrupted a pro-Trump rally in St. Paul, Minnesota. Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree rioting.
No charges were filed against Kaine, or the other four protesters who were detained, due to “insufficient facts to prove felony-level riot,” according to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.
Kaine was among the protesters who clashed with President Trump supporters outside the Minnesota State Capitol. The group disrupted the rally with air horns, whistles, chants, and a smoke bomb, according to the Pioneer Press.
Linwood was released from jail Tuesday morning.
Sen. Kaine released a statement to the Pioneer Press Tuesday night through a spokesperson.
“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” he said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
Linwood Kaine, who goes by Woody, is a Minneapolis resident and attended Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
