Son of U.S. Senator facing new charge

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---After his arrest last week, the son of U.S. Senator Rand Paul faces a new charge.

Sheriff's officials in Charlotte confirm to WDRB News there's an active warrant for William Paul's arrest on a new charge of assault on a female by aggravated physical force.

A sheriff's official says the circumstances are unclear but that it likely stems from his arrest on January 5th at the Charlotte airport.

After a flight from Lexington, the 19-year old Paul was charged with disorderly conduct, being intoxicated and disruptive and consuming alcohol underage.

Senator Paul's office said then that while Senator Paul of Kentucky is a public figure, his family matters should be private.
