As the protests against President Trump continue, it was just revealed that Hillary Clinton's vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine's youngest son was arrested at a rally in the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul.

According to reports, Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, who lives in Minneapolis, showed up to the capitol building Saturday where he joined a group of protesters to disrupt a “March 4 Trump” rally there:

Linwood was one of four to be arrested under the suspicion of second-degree rioting at the Trump rally.

The protest quickly escalated when Trump supporters began raising American flags outside the building as they chanted for tougher immigration restrictions.

Then a protester hung a banner over the rotunda, which read “Yall Racists”:


In the midst of this, a fight broke out between the protesters and Trump supporters, when a stun gun was fired.

One man was even left with a bloody face.

Once police arrived at the scene, Linwood, along with some of his fellow protesters, was taken to Ramsey County Jail, where he remained until Tuesday:

Apparently, officers had to use “some force” when detaining Linwood.

As a further investigation continues, Linwood appeared to be among a group who lit fireworks in the building before fleeing the scene.

Since Linwood was arrested, Sen. Kaine released this statement to the Pioneer Press:

“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
