Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's son arrested
21-year-old charged with public intoxication, resisting arrestAUSTIN, Texas - The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was arrested early Friday and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest, law enforcement officials said.
John Ellis Bush, 21, was arrested by agents of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at 2:30 a.m. on a corner of Austin’s Sixth Street bar district, said commission spokesman Roger Wade.
The nephew of President Bush was released on $2,500 bond for the resisting arrest charge, and on a personal recognizance bond for the public intoxication charge, officials said.
“My son’s doing fine. It’s a private matter. We will support him. We’re sad for him. But I’m not going to discuss it on the public square with 30 cameras,” the governor told reporters.
You are a public figure, you moron! Whatever your family does is subjected to scrutiny and a reflection of you.
Alcoholism must run in the family. No wonder Bushy can't finish a declarative sentence on his own. His speech in New Orleans lacked compassion and empathy. I honestly don't understand why he is our president.
