U.S. Senator Tim Kaine‘s youngest son was charged with disrupting a pro-Trump rally.

Linwood “Woody” Kaine was charged Friday. Authorities accused the 24-year-old Kaine of “fleeing police on foot, concealing his identity in a public place, and obstructing legal process.”

Kaine, whose father was Hilary Clinton‘s running mate during the last election, was among the ten anti-Trump protesters who allegedly caused havoc outside the March 4 rally in St. Paul, Minnesota.

A criminal complaint says Kaine and others changed into black clothing during the rally and entered the Capitol. One group member threw a smoke bomb inside. The complaint says the 24-year-old Kaine was among those who ran away.

According to the police report, Kaine attempted to flee by taking off his clothes. When he was caught, an officer pushed him against the wall and had to use a knee strike to hold him down.

“Today’s announcement of misdemeanor charges against Senator Kaine’s son contains no suggestion that he engaged in disruptive behavior while at the rally, but are instead focused on his actions as he was arrested after he left,” a spokesperson for Kaine said Friday. “Tim and Anne support their son and hope the matter is resolved soon.”
