It runs in the family...

Obviously alcohol and drug issues run in the family......Uncle George, his sister, Cousin Jenna, Noelle, and now little John. One wonders if Grandma Babs and Gramps like to knock back a few too.

Governor Jeb Bush's Son charged with Public Intoxication and Resisting Arrest.

AUSTIN, Texas - The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was arrested early Friday and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest, law enforcement officials said.
John Ellis Bush, 21, was arrested by agents of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at 2:30 a.m. on a corner of Austin's Sixth Street bar district, said commission spokesman Roger Wade.

The nephew of President Bush was released on $2,500 bond for the resisting arrest charge, and on a personal recognizance bond for the public intoxication charge, officials said.

It's not the first time Florida's first family has experienced legal problems with one of their children.

Noelle Bush, the governor's daughter, was arrested in January 2002 for passing fraudulent prescriptions at a pharmacy to illegally obtain drugs. She was required by the court to complete a drug rehabilitation program in August 2003. She was also caught with illegal drugs while incarcerated and going through re-hab. (But, by virtue of the wonders of being the Governor's daughter and from a very rich and powerful, self-involved, and self-righteous family she of course skated with little recourse. And, imagine, I had always been taught that Republicans are supposed to be about personal responsibility and NO handouts).

Poor little John, I am sure it is not his fault just like it wasn't any of his relatives fault when THEY got in trouble. After all, hasn't everyone been charged with resisting arrest. Wanna place some bets that his Uncle or Dad make a few well placed phone calls and little John will be back home to his bourbon and coke in no time.
