The child of Hillary Clinton’s former running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, was one of six captured Saturday dissenting a rally in support of President Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol.
Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, and four others were captured on doubt of second-degree revolt at the “Walk 4 Trump” rally in St. Paul. Someone else was referred to for cluttered lead, the Duluth News Tribune reported.
Kaine, who lives in Minneapolis, was released from the Ramsey County Jail Tuesday pending a further examination, experts said. No charges were recorded against him or the four others. The city lawyer is inspecting the episode.
Kaine was included in an engagement between Trump supporters and counter-nonconformists, St. Paul police representative Steve Linders said.
Linders said Kaine was seen with four individuals who lit firecrackers in the legislative center and fled. Police was examining whether Kaine lit a firecracker, the newspaper reported.
Linders said Kaine and the gathering had arrested a block from the Statehouse. He said police followed Kaine and the gathering down and capturing officers needed to utilize “some force” to arrest him.
Nobody from Sen. Kaine’s office contacted the department, he included.
Sen. Kaine and spouse Anne Holton released an announcement Tuesday night.
“We love that our three children have their views and concerns about current political issues,” they said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
