    It's a private family matter just as long as Sen. Paul does not try to use his political influence to get his son off the hook.

    What is to do with his son's drinking???? Put a word then release him from prison??? Just like third world, India???? Nonsense news. Lock him up, jail, fine and teach.

    Flight time from Kentucky to North Carolina is approximately 45 min. and to have the Feds waiting to arrest you upon arrival, there's more to this story than just alcohol but Rand Paul wants privacy after a public display. LOL

    That simply demonstrates that kids disrespect their parents, more than themselves.

    Never easy raising children....especially when the father is in the spotlight. Hope It's a one time occurance and can put adolescent alcohol use behind them. Good luck.
