According to CNN, William Hilton Paul was arrested Saturday after flying from Kentucky to North Carolina and charged with three misdemeanor offenses: disorderly conduct at an airport, being intoxicated and disruptive, and consuming beer and wine underage.

The Kentucky senator issued a statement, asking for privacy:

"Sen. Paul is a national public figure and subject to scrutiny in the public arena, however, as many parents with teenagers would understand, his family should be afforded the privacy and respect they deserve in a situation such as this," according to the statement released late Sunday by Moira Bagley, Paul's communications director.
