Dean's 17 year old son has been arrested for trying to steal alcohol. This has been confirmed by the Burlington police department. He was arrested late last night at the Burlington country club; a felony citation for burglary.
The boy wasn't arrested and hauled off to jail, but he was issued a felony citation. He has a court date on August 5.
EDIT: Also, he's being charged as an adult.
Dean has canceled an event in Iowa to deal with the family crisis.
This could be a bit of trouble for Dean's campaign. OTOH, the Bush daughters are hardly model citizens, and he seems to be doing okay.
There's a statement issued by Dean. I'll try to track down the fulltext. Dean has asked for the media to respect his privacy. Unlikely. .
