LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The son of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence.
News media outlets report that William Hilton Paul entered the plea Tuesday in a Kentucky district court. The reports also say the University of Kentucky senior was ordered to pay $718 in fines and court fees and attend a safe-driving program. His license will be suspended for 45 days.
Rand Paul is seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
William Paul was charged in 2013 with underage drinking, disorderly conduct and simple assault against a female flight attendant. Those charges were dropped. Later that year, he was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol at Keeneland Race Course.
A campaign spokesman said in an email that Paul doesn't comment on private family matters.
