Rand Paul’s son crashes into parked car while drunk, cited but not arrested

Rand Paul’s son had a drunk driving dispute with a parked car in Lexington KY this week.

This week, 2016 GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul’s son had a drunk driving dispute with a parked car in Lexington KY.

William Hilton Paul, 22, was reportedly given the citation for drunk driving late this Sunday morning after crashing a friend’s car — without insurance.

From Kentucky.com:

According to the citation, Lexington police found Paul at 11:24 a.m. sitting in the driver’s seat of a maroon 2006 Honda Ridgeline that had collided with a parked vehicle at 147 Woodland Avenue. The report said Paul was “belligerent” and had “a strong odor of alcohol,” bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

A witness told police that just before the collision, Paul had been “revving his engine” while sitting alone in the truck, which was perpendicular in the intersection of Old Vine and Woodland.

The witness “then heard a loud crash,” according to the police citation.

Police say that Paul failed a sobriety test and refused to take a blood test. He was then issued a citation and not arrested because that’s “standard protocol” for a suspect who’s hospitalized.

This is not the first time Paul has had trouble with the law in regards to alcohol. He apparently has two other arrests on his record.

    Wow such leniency for an open and shut drunk driving case!!! Amazing how kind the justice system can be when criminals are connected to powerful politicians. Then again I’m sure the general public would receive similar treatment since justice is blind.

    Here are some questions I’d like answered.

    1) How far apart are these 3 incidents?
    2) Does KY have a probation period for those arrest for drunk driving?
    3) Does KY have a 3 strikes policy?
    4) If yes to the last 2 Questions then why isn’t this privileged asshole in jail?

    Yes, that’s because he hadn’t been to bed yet all night Saturday. Not good, not good at all.
